In 2009, the Printmakers’ very successful annual exhibition and book centred around the time Tom Paine spent in Lewes. Here are a few images, as they appear in the book. First, Caroline Chappel’s linocut and wood engraving of Catlin’s tobacconists, and the inscribed snuff mill wheel at Bull House, a collagraph by Carolyn Trant
Below is Vivian Halas’s impressive dark woodcut of Lewes Castle.
Next come ‘At His Desk’ by June Flanagan, and ‘Common Sense’ by Sasha Howard.
Finally, the present-day Friends Meeting House, also by Sasha Howard, and the earlier one, now a cottage called Old Meeting, by Carolyn Trant.
