The Complete Etchings Of Norman Lindsay by Lin Bloomfield

The importance of this book for all lovers of Lindsay’s art, for all connoisseurs, collectors, art historians, dealers, graphic artists and students will be immediately apparent. It is a major addition to the Lindsay literature and to the literature of printmaking in the 20th century. The Complete Etchings of Norman Lindsay was the winner of the Australian Sixteenth National Print Gold Award for two and three colour printing, judged to be ‘consistent in colour, register and imposition. A worthy winner in a high standard category’. The illuminating text with over one hundred and sixty illustrations complements the catalogues raisonnĂ©, weaving into the book insights into Lindsay’s technique, the books he illustrated with original etchings and the etched bookplates. Among the highlights of the volume are chapters on the published and unpublished etchings. These chapters contribute to a deeper understanding of Lindsay’s philosophy and outline the source of inspiration for many of the etchings.
