Maker of Books and Member of the Guild, Shirley Jones has generously donated these artist books to the Guild, to help sustain our organisations charitable aims.

Many of you will know that Shirley Jones was/has been a Member of the Maker's Guild of Wales for over 25 years during which time many of her prints, and occasionally a copy of one of her limited edition artist books, were sold.

Shirley was brought up in the Rhondda and when she was forty was accepted as a student in the International Printmaking Course at Croydon Art College and then became one of the leading creators of artist's books. In 2019 she produced the book, "Journey - Mezzotint and the Artist's Book, A Forty Year Journey" which contains over thirty-five high quality reproductions, of varying size, of her work . This was printed by Adrian Lack, one of the outstanding fine press printers in the U.K. and bound by Ludlow Bookbinding, in an edition of 500, 100 Case Bound with slipcase signed and numbered by Shirley (£95) and 400 (£50) limp bound copies. Most of the case bound books were quickly sold to the 100 rare book libraries and private collectors who purchase Shirley's work.

Shirley has been well aware of the impact Covid 19 has had upon sales in small galleries like CITB so she has generously decided to give 25 copies to each of four small galleries in Wales and has agreed that they can be sold at £25. When all 25 copies are sold, further copies can be bought from CITB for £35, of which CITB will retain £20. They could be an ideal Christmas present for somebody interested in the Arts.
