Caxton Club: Sirocco, 1933

Denis Glover's earliest publications were under the auspices of the Caxton Club at Canterbury University College. From the start, however, the book design and typography were distinguished by elegance and contemporary style. Lino cuts such as this were popular among British artists at the time. Florence Akins, who created this example, was a recent student of the college's school of art.
