The artist Mark Hearld finds his inspiration in the flora and fauna of the British countryside: a blue-eyed jay perched on an oak branch; two hares enjoying the spoils of an allotment; a mute swan standing at the frozen water’s edge; and a sleek red fox prowling the fields. Hearld admires such twentieth-century artists as Edward Bawden, John Piper, Eric Ravilious and Enid Marx, and, like them, he chooses to work in a range of media – paint, print, collage, textiles and ceramics. Workbook is the first collection of Hearld’s beguiling art. The works are grouped into nature-related themes introduced by Hearld, who narrates the story behind some of his creations and discusses his influences. He explains his particular love of collage, which he favours for its graphic quality and potential for strong composition. Art historian Simon Martin contributes an essay on Hearld’s place in the English popular-art tradition, and also meets Hearld in his museum-like home to explore the artist’s passion for collecting objects, his working methods and his startling ability to view the wonders of the natural world as if through a child’s eyes.

The Curwen Press, set up by the Reverend John Curwen in 1863, was initially concerned with printing sheet music. Curwen's grandson Harold led a design revolution in typography and illustration in the 1920s when the Press commissioned work from artists including Edward Bawden, Claud Lovat Fraser, Paul Nash and Eric Ravilious, contributing to their lasting reputation. Advertising jobs and limited edition books received the same perfectionist attention and Curwen's colleague, Oliver Simon, continued the tradition of talent spotting, giving early opportunities to John Piper and Graham Sutherland. From the 1930s, the Curwen Press encouraged artists to work directly on lithographic stones and plates, helping to generate a revival of interest in the potential of lithography for mass production of original work. In the 1950s, the market for limited edition lithographic prints was developing in France and America, and the Curwen Studio was set up in 1958 to provide a sympathetic professional environment for experiment in printmaking. The artist printer from the beginning was Stanley Jones, who remains involved with the Studio as it celebrates its fiftieth anniverary.
