The Sun Calendar 1920.

Nash, Paul (illus.)

London: Sun Engraving Company Ltd., (1919). Small quarto. (28)pp. Arranged by Paul Nash, with illustrations by Paul Nash, John Nash, and Rupert Lee. A poem and an illustration in black on a solid colored background for each month. The poems chosen by Nash, by poets such as William Blake, Edith Sitwell, and Aldous Huxley, reflect the nature of the season. Paul Nash contributed the two cover illustrations, as well as the images for January, March, May, July, October, and November. Following Nash's return from World War I, he took up wood engraving, and his art began to change to the harsh, angular style for which he is known. This calendar was the third book illustrated by Nash, and the first with wood engravings. Bound in printed yellow wrappers. Some soiling to wrappers, and small ink smudge to January poem, else a near fine copy of a rare item. Item #26878
