This wood engraving was also included in ‘Love Night’ (1936) by Powys Mathers, a limited edition publication by The Golden Cockerel Press. Strong in art deco influence, and darkly and erotically atmospheric, Buckland Wright’s wood engraved illustrations conveyed the tropical setting for Powys Mathers’ ‘Love Night’ to great effect. This is one of the most sort after engravings from the series and was one of those made available by JBW as an independent signed work.
