David Jones

David Jones portraitA painter, engraver, poet and author, Jones was born in Kent. He studied at Camberwell School of Art and then Westminster School of Art before entering Eric Gill’s community at Ditchling in 1921, where he joined the Guild of St Joseph and St Dominic and was taught wood engraving by Desmond Chute, later leaving with Gill for Wales to develop and refine his techniques.

Much of Jones’ work was for the Golden Cockerel Press, with illustrations for Gulliver’s Travels (1925), the Book of Jonah (1926), and finally The Chester Play of the Deluge (1927), though he also produced a number of his own written works, the most important of which include The Roman Quarry, In Parenthesis, and The Anathemata. He was later appointed CBE in 1955.
