    I have long felt, and said whenever asked, that Ken Hunt is the most important modern engraver.
    He has influenced the work of everyone you can think of.
    When he started under Kell, engraving was decadent.
    By the mid 1960's Ken had raised it, almost single handedly back to the level it had been at in earlier days, and very quickly took it far beyond where it had ever been before.
    We all owe Ken Hunt, for pointing the way forward.
    All the best,

    Thanks for showing us these pictures, Sam. There is almost too much to take in. I have had to visit several times for just one more look!

    Not to take even a fraction of Ken Hunts contributions we must not forget McKenzie's work as well.

    Those pictures really made me feel humble. It should inspire and teach at the same time. I hope that someday he produces an engraving book..To say that I was impressed would be an understatement..Thanks Sam for posting,and we thank Ken for his beautiful works !!
