St Dominic’s Press Christmas Card Catalogue: The Ass, 1929
Measures: 24.0 x 36.7 cm
Hilary Pepler’s St Dominic’s Press printed fcommercial Christmas card catalogues, personal gifts, notes and cards to friends and family or the season. These exquisite engravings, prints and letterpress messages by guild members Eric Gill, David Jones, Philip Hagreen and Hilary Pepler jostle alongside of those other colleagues and fellow artists including Mary Dudley Short and Edward Walters.
This card catalogues is particularly interesting – The story of the Ass is a poignant but fascinating insight into Pepler’s philosophy – a mixture of educative lecturing, social awareness, and humour.
