C. F. Tunnicliffe is not, perhaps, known for his depictions of human beings. He is the artist of heavy horses, fat bulls, sheep and other bucolic subjects: at least, those are the images most readily conjured. So I was quite charmed to come across these in a copy of The Lone Swallows and Other Essays of Boyhood and Youth by Henry Wililamson in a shop today. Originally it was published in 1922 but this is a late 1930s reprint. Tunnicliffe provided woodcuts for a number of Williamson's books including, most famously perhaps, Tarka the Otter.
