Edward Bawden

While searching the Internet for some new funny animal videos, I stumbled across these face-breakingly beautiful linocuts by Edward Bawden. Bawden was a ridiculously prolific illustrator, whose work can be found everywhere from book covers and Folio Society book illustrations to the walls of the London Underground. But I just can’t get enough of these colour prints from his London markets series.

If you’ll excuse me, I have to gouge out my eyes now.
