Matthew Smith, Express Art Book, 16 colour prints, British Painters
Vintage art book periodical containing 16 colour prints by the turn of the 20th century British artist Matthew Smith, published by Beaverbrook Newspapers.
The British Painters series dates to the 1950s and 1960s, and the periodical is described as "An Express Art Book".
After the initial pages which give a brief introduction to the artist and a description of the prints to follow, the pull-out colour prints are provided on glossy paper thoughout the rest of the periodical. The 16th print is placed between the cellophane cover and the front of the periodical.
The outer cover of the periodical is in stiffened card to protect the inner pages.
The size of the periodical is 37 cm x 27 cm/14.5 " x 10.6".
Condition of the periodical is good, with little previous use. The original cellophane to the outer cover is slightly scuffed. All the 16 prints are present. There may be some creasing, minor bending or minor surface marks to the outer cover from long-term storage.
