On this cover, Eric Ravilious illustrates a specific time and place through lithographic printing. Ravilious has portrayed not only the architectural features of the shops but the variations of character and appearance in each one. Using lithography allows the artists drawn lines to be retained as it requires less pressure to make the makes needed for printing. The medium has been used here to great effect, providing lively pictures to accompany an exploration of the British high street.
