The Charles Tunnicliffe Society
Established 2005
"To promote greater awareness of the life and work
of Charles Frederick Tunnicliffe OBE, RA  1901-1979"

Country Life Annuals

It is said that Charles Tunnicliffe produced some of his finest wood
engraving work in the late 1930’s, and his scraperboard work of the
1940’s was equally as good.  As a result he was invited by Frank Whitaker,
of "Country Life", to create a scraperboard illustration for the title page
of the 1949 ‘Country Life Annual’.  This proved to be very successful and
Tunnicliffe’s title-page scraperboard illustrations then continued
through until 1972, with the exception of 1953 and 1971.
