Bob Guy (1947 - 2023) studied painting and printmaking at Kingston University and lived and worked in Mid-Wales from 1973 until his death last year. He started to specialise in wood engraving, a technique originally used (in the 18th and 19th century) in commercial illustration, and revived in the 20th century as a suitable medium for small fine art presses. This tradition is continued with great enthusiasm by the Society of Wood Engravers. He was elected a member of Society of Wood Engravers in 2010.

Bob liked to collaborate with poets and bards, like George Miller, Childe Roland, and Robin Hughes, resulting in hand made books (Bob was a member of the online collective www.artistsbooksonline.com)

He also found inspiration in the many walks we took in the Welsh countryside

His work is held in numerous private collections, the British Library, the National Library of Wales, and the Ashmolean Museum.
