Sculptor, letter-cutter, typafe designer, illustrator and pornographer.
A disciple of Edward Johnston who ambandoned his ambition to become an architect in favour of letter carving.

"The 'New Art' notion that you can make letters whatever shapes you like, is as foolish as the notion -- if anyone has such a notion -- that you can make houses any shapes you like. You can't, unless you live all by yourself on a desert island."
