Bibliographic reference
The following excerpt is from the Tim Mara archive on vads.ac.uk: 'Edwin la Dell (1914-1970) became lithography tutor at the College in 1948 and later the department Professor from 1955 until his death in 1970. He oversaw the production of several print portfolios during his time as both Tutor and Professor, most notably 'The Coronation Suite' in 1953 and the 'Wapping to Windsor' series in 1957-8. The department then produced a third collection, the 'Shakespeare' series in 1964 to commemorate the anniversary of the playwright's birth. All were lithographic projects reflective of the mass-market appeal for illustrative fine art prints at a relatively inexpensive price.'
