Gwen Raverat (1885-1957), grand-daughter of Charles Darwin, was a leading figure in the revival of wood-engraving in the first half of the 20th Century. One of Rupert Brooke's Neo-Pagans and Virginia Woolf's Bloomsbury group, her best-selling memoir, Period Piece is still in print 64 years after its first publication. She has an extensive following; with work in galleries, museums and private collections worldwide, and a number of publications written about her life and work. 

The Raverat Archive aims to promote Gwen Raverat’s work through exhibitions, lectures and by the sale of books, prints from the estate (original and giclee) and other merchandise via this website and selected stockists.
