The success of this 1980s wood-engraved design by artist Sue Scullard (born 1958) for Waitrose pate is reflected in the fact that it was still being used in 1995. Waitrose felt that wood-engraving and other non-photographic illustration appeared to convey a message that greater care was taken in the manufacture of a product.
