LAWRENCE, John (artist). Susan HILL. The Four Seasons. Four wood engravings made in 1982 to illustrate The Magic Apple Tree, by Susan Hill, etc. The Fleece Press. 1997.

A series of 4 separate, and striking, wood-engravings depicting the seasons of the year, printed on fine mould-made paper throughout, each image size circa 145 x 200mm, contained within the original greyish-blue card folder titled in umber and blue; each numbered 93/120 and captioned, signed, and dated, by John Lawrence, in pencil; a fine and complete set.
The wood-engraver John Lawrence was commissioned to illustrate Susan Hill's book The Magic Apple Tree (1982) which is a work of non fiction about the author's move, along with husband and young daughter, to Moon Cottage, in a small Oxfordshire hamlet, from where she recorded the "sights, smells, the people, gardens, animals, births, festivals, and deaths" which punctuated the cycle of months. This limited collection of 4 engravings, depicting the seasons, issued from that project.
