Artist's proof aside from the edition of 150 books.

With the help of Walter Taylor, King learnt to typeset with an experimentation to letterpress his first book. Using images of parts of shoes, lipsticks, light bulbs, tobacco leaves and even upturned chairs, Ron assembled the scraps into bold collages. He worked to create a strong visual response to the main characters that were eventually made into photo-stencils, this was a new direction for Ron. He had returned to the use of masks once more with the aim to make them 'more terrifying, monumental...and modern.'

The Macbeth Suite comprises of 10 screenprinted masks. Held in many public collections, including; The Yale Centre for British Art, The V&A, The British Library, The Chicago Art Institute and many college and university collections.

Of all the classical texts that Ron produced, Macbeth is stated as one of his personal favourites.
Ron King PortraitRon King has had an artistic life that spans a multi faceted and inspiring 60 years.  His iconographic work is marked by a distinctive, fresh and often pioneering approach. As an artist his work can’t be pinned down to by genre but it does have an approach that is hallmarked by a distinctively curious, questioning and energetic approach.

He picked up a scholarship at Chelsea for his painting and then several art awards when he emigrated to Canada, with his wife and sculptor Willow Legge in 1956.  Here he worked as an art director in McLean Hunter publishing house.  In 1960 Ron returned to the UK with his family to paint for his first one-man show in Toronto.  In 1961 while teaching at Farnham School of Art he took up printmaking, which led to a contract in 1964 with the well known print publishers Editions Alecto.  Unable to publish his first book ‘The Prologue to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales’ with them, he followed through the project himself and formed Circle Press.
