Sydney Matthewman and Albert Wainwright

The poet Sydney Matthewman who was, at various points a founder of the magazine Yorkshire Poetry and an editor of The Poetry Review in the 1920s, and through the agency of his father's printing business, using the imprint The Swan Press, he put out a number of pamphlets of his own and other's work. There is a very good and concise overview of Matthewman's life and writing on the Lesser Known Writer's Blog. Many of Matthewman's publications were illustrated of decorated by Albert Wainwright and I was delighted the other day to be shown the most complete collection of Wainwright's work for publication I've ever come across and I was grateful to be allowed to take these photographs to share here.
