I mentioned in one of my previous blogs about the forthcoming portfolio on Frank Brangwyn from Auad Publishing. “Frank Brangwyn, R.A.: The Way of the Cross” is now available. I’ve picked up my copy and am enthusiastic to recommend this fine publication.
I’ve bought portfolios before, but none compare to the craftsmanship and printing found in Auad’s Brangwyn collection. Portfolio’s of this quality are generally reserved for high-end fine artists commanding a lofty sticker price, or are found in early 20th century printing. Few publishers today go through the trouble or invest this much energy into portfolios. Matched with the beauty of Frank Brangwyn’s work, this is a highly cherished item for me.
The following promotion text describes the item and how you can place your order:
