Update from Matthew Butler Books

Enid Marx (1902 – 1998) is best remembered for her textile designs, especially those for London Transport buses and trains. She was one of a handful of women elected Royal Designer of Industry and the only person to have the epithet “pattern maker” attached to the Award. But she was equally at ease with wood engraving or drawing for print making, end papers, book jackets, book illustrations and stamp design.
Outside her design activities, Marx’s main interest lay with popular or folk art. Together with Margaret Lambert, she wrote many articles and books on the subject and amassed a considerable collection of books and artefacts. The latter are now lodged at Compton Verney in Warwickshire.
Enid Marx’s archive and library were donated to the Victoria and Albert Museum, with the stipulation that library material other than books which she had personally written, designed or illustrated might be sold to support the cataloguing and conservation of the archive.

Matthew Butler Books is delighted to offer the final part of this Collection for sale at Churchdown in October. It includes many books and catalogues.

Additionally Stephen Rench has sent some images of just part of the stock he will be bringing along on Sunday, shown below.
