Christopher Skelton in The Engravings of Eric Gill, 1983 regarding the printed title page and wrapper for Gill’s 25 Nudes: “The page was originally printed from line blocks reduced from prints of P968-71” He adds that Ralph Beedham, Gill’s one time assistant, helped Gill with the blocks.
Gill’s relationship with the blocks is strong both as artist and printer as the title page was printed at his press in High Wycombe and the book was Gill’s own production.
