Anderson, Andrew. Enclosures: Times and Places. Stroud, England: Evergreen Press, 2009. (NE1147.6.A53 A4 2009)
“The enclosure of space and time is the theme of these wood-engravings and linocuts–imaginary walled cities and stables, a Norfolk church, a Cambridgeshire rectory, a medieval priory…. These wood-engravings and linocuts celebrate eight hundred years of an Oxfordshire church, two Church festivals, the academic terms of a Cambridge college chapel, a weekend conference, a birth. The blocks were engraved over a period of twenty-five years.” — From the author’s introduction.
