Lynd Ward (1905–1985) was one of the foremost wood engravers and graphic book artists of 20th-century America. The Lynd Ward Collection of Wood Engravings and Other Graphic Art includes some 5,000 wood engravings, proof sheets, wood-engraving blocks, and original illustrations for many of his books. Highlights include wood engravings for Ward’s novels without words (notably Gods’ Man, Vertigo, and Madman’s Drum) and many of the wood blocks and proof sheets for his illustrations to Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus. Also in the collection are original illustrations for a number of his children’s books, including The Silver Pony and The Biggest Bear.
