High Street

by J. M. Richards & Eric Ravilious

£20.00

High Street’ by Eric Ravilious was the book that inspired us to bring Holly & Co to the high street!

First published in 1938, this classic book introduces the British high street, pairing the timeless illustrations of beloved artist Eric Ravilious with an engaging text by architectural historian J. M. Richards. Shops include the family butcher, the cheesemonger, the knife grinder, and the oyster bar.

Only 2,000 copies of the original book were printed before the lithographic plates were destroyed in the London Blitz during World War II. As a result, it has become one of the most collectible of all artist’s books from this period. This beautiful facsimile edition features Ravilious’s illustrations in exquisite colour and includes an essay by V&A curator Gill Saunders, putting the book and its history into context.
