This block was originally produced in 1927 for "Troilus and Criseyde" but here in its second state as used in The Canterbury Tales.

Eric Gill realised the aesthetic value of his woodblocks and would buy them back from the Golden Cockerel Press. He would then run gesso into them and carve them into silhouettes.
