Around the Block: a ramble around Lewes in the footsteps of Gideon Mantell

A book of woodcuts has been launched at Art Wave in Lewes on 27th August 2010. The pictures of Lewes landmarks  are produced by members of the Paddock Printmakers and are accompanied by Gideon Mantell’s words. These are taken from his publication A Day’s Ramble around the Ancient Town of Lewes and relate to how the town looked in 1846.

An exhibition of the prints is open to view in the cafe at the Needlemakers during the festival (28th August – 12th September). Prints can also be found at the Tom Paine Press on the High Street, by the bottleneck.

The hand bound, limited edition book (180 copies only) are on sale contact Carolyn Trant <> to reserve a copy. Copies cost £45 and are numbered. They can be bought from the Tom Paine press.
