'A Fine Line - Rob Barnes, East Anglian Printmaker' - Softback illustrated book
Rob Barnes is a Norfolk-based artist specialising in linocut landscape prints often featuring wildlife. To date, 90 of his original prints have been adopted by greetings card publisher Green Pebble for their designs.
Mascot Media's beautiful book, A Fine Line - Rob Barnes, East Anglian Printmaker, is the first to feature a large collection of Rob's work in one volume and, as well as showcasing 120 prints from his prolific 2010-2020 period, the book also reproduces work from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, showing how Rob's distinctive style has developed.
The artist provides an illustrated explanation of his printmaking technique, and there is an abbreviated biography. The colourful print portfolio is divided into four main sections: 'Norfolk & Suffolk', 'Birds & Beasts', 'Farming & Rural Life', 'Sand & Sea'.
