Harry Brockway

 Harry Brockway - stonecarver and illustrator. Take a look at his portfolio - highly skilled artist!

Two charity shop finds: Tom Sawyer and Huckberry Finn.
I was attracted by the wood engravings of course.
I'd never read these classics before and really enjoyed them.
The joie de vivre and ingenuity of the boys and the dialects spoken.

Eye openers to social history and attitudes in that time and place.
