The Printed Work of Claud Lovat Fraser.
The Printed Work of Claud Lovat Fraser.
[By Christopher Millard.]
London Henry Danielson 1923.
Book, bibliography, 8vo (255 x 155mm, 10 x 6") five plates by Clark including portrait frontispiece, pp. 106. Quarter black buckram with printed spine label, Lovat Fraser Curwen patterned paper-covered boards. One of a limited edition of 275 copies printed on antique de luxe paper numbered '183' and signed by the author. With errata slip and extra spine label. A very good copy, uncut, with minor rubbing to extremities.
Claud Lovat Fraser (1890 - 1921) was an artist and designer of theatrical characters and scenes, and decorations for chap-books and broadsides, which were published under the title Flying Fame (1913). Judged by their imaginative quality, these latter designs are perhaps the most important which he achieved. On the outbreak of the European War in 1914 Fraser joined the army, and in 1916 was invalided home from Flanders. In 1919 he held the first representative exhibition of his work, and established his reputation. In the next year his designs for the settings and costumes of As You Like It and The Beggar's Opera, produced at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, brought him unusual fame, and from this time onwards he produced innumerable designs for the theatre. He made a close study also of the various approaches to process-reproduction in colour, and this resulted in a prolific output by him of booklets, rhyme sheets, end papers, trade cards, and similar matter. He had realized early the importance of visualizing design and type together as an inseparable whole; and the methods which he came to employ in his printed and published work exercised a considerable influence. Among the later books which he decorated, Poems from the Works of Charles Cotton (1922) and The Luck of the Bean-Rows by Charles Nodier (1921) are notable examples. He made designs for other theatrical productions, such as La Serva Padrona, Lord Dunsany's If, two ballets for Madame Tamar Karsavina, and Gustav Holst's Savitri.
