Ashmolean Museum Oxford

Box of Delights

by Anne Desmet


Produced to accompany the exhibition at the Ashmolean musuem in 2020, this 48 page catalogue provides a rich and varied view into the world of wood engraving and the fantastic artworks which have been produced through different techniques.

The Ashmolean Museum houses one of the most extensive collections of wood engravings in the world. The collection effectively began with the gift in 1964, by Arthur Mitchell, of over 3,000 prints, including a large group of wood engravings.

From landscapes and cityscapes to industrial scenes and still life imagery, each engraving from the Ashmolean collection has been carefully selected by author Anne Desmet to mark the centenary of the Society of Wood Engravers in 2020.
