"Engish Folk Heroes", Christina Hope, published by B.T. Batsford Ltd, London 1948 (original wooduts by Eric King)

Couldn't find any information on Eric King but these woodcuts are so beautiful. They remind me of Samuel Palmer's engravings in the way the shapes are formed and the use of dramatic light. Very strong compositions and drawing. The condition of the book is really good as well (apart from the worn cover) so they look like they've just been printed.
