National Trust Illustrations











It's always nice to come across this kind of book. Thoroughly appealing and yet of no financial value at all. On Trust For the Nation by Clough Williams-Ellis (Paul Elek, London, 1947) is a celebration of the National Trust and is thoroughly illustrated, mostly by black and white photos. But there are just four or five colour illustrations by Barbara Jones which, in both style and palette are wonderfully evocative of the period. There are b/w sketches too. I think they are completely charming.
