This is a hand-printed and hand-bound book made up of 39 images depicting the Anglo Saxon epic poem of Beowulf!

It illustrates Beowulf's conflict with the monster Grendel who is terrorising the hall of King Hrothgar and Beowulf's fight with Grendel's Mother. It does NOT illustrate Beowulf's fight with the Dragon as this takes place later on in his life.

Beneath the dust jacket it has a hard cover bound in buckram.

It is from an edition of 20 with each book being numbered and signed.

All images were made using vinyl-cut relief printing using waterbased black ink on off-white thick paper.
