Artists’ books by the internationally acclaimed Welsh artist.

Shirley Jones is an artist, writer and printer. For 30 years, her Red Hen Press , located in Powys, has been creating limited edition letterpress books that present poetry and prose in concert with etchings and mezzotints.

Each of Jones’ books is a total concept - the choice of paper and typeface, the unity of text and images, and the harmony of the binding are all as carefully considered as the visual and literary creativity involved.

Her work has received critical acclaim and is collected worldwide.
