The first drawing Paine ever made for reproduction – for Joseph Thorpe. I know nothing more about Joseph Thorpe.
Judging by the style and signature, this drawing of a hare in a graveyard is an early work. How early I cannot say.
Cover design (below) for a ‘Craftsmaship’ series booklet by Weir & Hamilton Ltd., Glasgow; printed by the Baynard Press, London. The subject of the booklet is furniture. It is likely that the design was produced in the period 1921-23 when Paine was employed by Guthrie & Wells.
