Albert Wainwright at the Beach

The eagle-eyed among you may have noticed that the illustration on the front of Callum James Short List #10 as announced yesterday was a watercolour by Albert Wainwright, a favourite of this blog. The watercolour was for sale in the catalogue (and has now sold), but I was delighted to discover recently, this illustration by Wainwright in a slightly strange book called, The Sea Microcosm, an anthology of sea-related prose, poetry and images edited by Dorothy Una Ratcliffe and published at Leeds in 1929. The illustrations are in the form of tipped-in plates and are rather well printed.
