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.
Ken by way of Sam, I very much thank you for allowing me to view and especially understanding your journey as an engraver. I have copied and printed some of the notes/illustrations as learning aids. However, I am concerned that I not take something that is surely not mine to take without asking but would like to continue making as was stated a "Ken Hunt workbook". If payment for these notes, illustrations is in order please let me know as I am indebted for the opportunity.
