Lovely site commemorating the lively and joyful work of wood-engraver Derrick Harris who, in the 1950s was possibly the most distinctive British wood engraver and illustrator then working. His work is both redolent of the best of the Fifties and, at the same time, timeless. A lovely man who just happened to be my Uncle.
