With not much time for pleasure reading right now, I at least found a few minutes to read the March chapter of my Rosemary Verey book, A Countrywoman's Year. I absolutely love the little stories she wrote down and the woodcut pictures are lovely. The story I like the most in this little section was about the old Churches money box that was full but no one could figure out how to open it, until they found a box containing the old 'tin opener' and the missing Chubb key on a red ribbon.....😌🗝️🎀 #rosemaryverey #acountrywomansyear #englishgardener #woodcuts #miriammacgregor

One of the first books I owned about wood engraving was “Women Engravers” by Patricia Jaffé. In it, she wrote glowingly about the work of Miriam Macgregor, and R.P. Leister’s “Allotments” printed and published by the Whittington Press in 1985. “Two years later ‘Allotments’ appeared. For me it is the most cheering little book of engravings to have been published this decade. Brassicas in all states of perfection and decay are drawn beautifully by Miriam Macgregor, and her sympathy for the denizens of the allotments is evident in the attention and care she gives to depicting their earnest work, their ingeniously constructed garden sheds, their triumphs and despairs.” #miriammacgregor #woodengraving #societyofwoodengravers #womenengravers #woodengraversnetwork

Today we decided to spotlight these lovely and rather calm winter scenes by wood engraver and compositor Miriam Macgregor from her 2012 Whittington Press publication, 'Midwinter.' The book includes 23 wood engravings (two in color) with letterpress-printed observations printed in an edition of 265 copies on Zerkall mould-made paper. Ours is one of 185 copies full-bound in printed papers and is signed by the artist. Macgregor is an Indian-born artist who arrived in England when she was ten. Trained at Hastings Art School, she began working for the Whittington Press in 1976, and has continued to illustrate many of their publications, as well as those for the Folio Society. Of her wood engravings, Whittington co-owner John Randle observes, “There is a life and vigour in Miriam’s engravings that was evident even in those engravings she brought to the Press in 1976, and a warmth in her figures … that perhaps reflects the warmth of her own personality.” ______________________________ #MiriamMacgregor #WhittingtonPress #finepress #finepressbooks #uwmspecialcollections #uwmdistcoll #woodengraving #woodengraver #woodengravings #colorwoodengraving

‘‘Oblomov’, which was published in 1859, grew out of an initial sketch, ‘Oblomov’s Dream’, a portrait of life on a sleepy country estate, rustic and dilapidated in its rut of feasting and napping and storytelling. It makes some sense of Oblomov’s condition, the family history at home in Oblomovka and the way the shared love of cosy simplicity has softened his heart and his bones.’ || Tim Blanchard on Ivan Goncharov’s ‘Oblomov’ in Issue 48 of Slightly Foxed magazine.⁠⠀ *⁠⠀ This issue of Slightly Foxed celebrated the wood engraving talents of Miriam Macgregor and a number of examples of Miriam’s work appeared throughout the issue. This supper scene originally appear in the Folio Society (@foliosociety) edition of ‘The Diary of a Village Shopkeeper’.⁠⠀ *⁠⠀ *⁠⠀ *⁠⠀ *⁠⠀ *⁠⠀ #oblomov #ivangoncharov #foxedwriters #miriammacgregor #foxedartists #artistsoninstagram #woodcut #woodcutwednesday #woodengraving #woodblock #woodblockprint #printmaking #printeresting #blockprint #justprintmaking #get_imprinted #doitfortheprocess #createcommune #moreillustrations #inspiredbyfood #feasting #magazineillustration #bookreview #literarymagazine #slightlyfoxed #literaryreview #foxedquarterly #recommendedreading #fromthearchives #readmorebooks

2019 will see the publication of 4 books from Whittington that in some way feature the pochoir stencilling technique; 'Oiseaux de France' by @peterandallen, 'Coastline' by @hannahcousins, Vance Gerry’s 'The Weather Bird Press' and Miriam Macgregor’s 'Chimeneys'. All demonstrate contrasting approaches to what is essentially a method of stencil reproduction using short, soft, stubby brushes, transparent colour and a brushing and/or dabbing method to get the ink to the right quality and texture. Evidence of the artist's hand at work in the application of colour is in contrast to silk screen where interpretation is essentially finished by the time the screens are prepared & the printing itself is more or less mechanical. If you feel an urge to talk stubby brushes, colour densities or stencil cutting Hannah and Peter will be with us at CODEX (table 97). / / / #pochoir #letterpress #publishing #TheWhittingtonPress #NomadLetterpress #OiseauxdeFrance #Coastline #VanceGerry #TheWeatherbirdPress #MiriamMacgregor #Chimneys #CODEX @codexfoundation

‘Winter Garden’, by Miriam Macgregor || Miriam Macgregor’s seasonal #woodengraving decorated the contents page of Issue 36 of #slightlyfoxed, Winter 2012, and is today’s #woodcutwednesday. Miriam was born in India and came to England when she was 10. She still remembers the first impact of the gentle English landscape seen from the train, and her #engravings retain that freshness. She was introduced to wood engraving by the engraver John Lawrence and developed her interest while working as a typographer in London. In 1977 she joined the Whittington Press and went on to illustrate many of their handsome books. Warmth, humour, a love of the domestic scene and of the Cotswold countryside in which she lives have been the distinguishing features of Miriam’s work during her long career as an author and illustrator.
