Edmund Hort New

Illustrator (1871-1931)
New came from a long-established Evesham family. He studied art in Birmingham and became known in the 1890s as an illustrator in the black-and-white style of the Arts and Crafts movement. He specialised in topographical views and bookplates. He lived in Evesham until 1905, when he moved to Oxford. C. R. Ashbee naturally used New's work to publicise the Guild of Handicraft once it was established in Chipping Campden.
