This is the first book to explore the life and work of Eric Slater, a colour woodcut artist who enjoyed international success in the 1930s but died in obscurity in 1963. He was one of a group of British print makers who adapted Japanese techniques to suit Western tastes. There are over 50 illustrations including 17 full colour plates. Most of his prints depict the Sussex landscape near his home in Seaford. As well as a list of his known works, there is a suggested walk through the countryside which inspired him.
