Eric Fraser in Lilliput

I was always struck by Eric Fraser’s work. When browsing older magazines one is bound to trip over it in Lilliput, Radio Times and other places. It’s easy to spot as it looks like woodcuts and is bold black and white usually and if not fully signed with his ‘curly’ name there will be an ‘ef’ somewhere.

Eric Fraser was born in 1902 and died in 1983. There is a book on Eric Fraser: Designer and Illustrator

Here are a few examples that I found and wanted to share. I apologise for not capturing all the story titles but at least you have the issue dates
