Only a small number have been printed by independent publisher, Bread and Butter Press. Robert Taveners career as an artist and teacher spanned over 50 years. Born in Hampstead, North London, Tavener was an office clerk until 1940 when he was called up, serving in the Royal Artillery Surrey Regiment. At the end of the War Tavener returned to London and trained as an illustrator and printmaker at Hornsey College of Art. During the 50s and 60s Tavener illustrated many magazine covers, childrens books and posters, most notably for London Transport for which he created his Horse Guards images.

Throughout his career he worked as a printmaker, hand printing his linocuts and lithographs in small editions of not more than 75 with his images inspired by English landscape and English architecture. He made his home in Eastbourne, Sussex teaching printmaking at the local school of art where he later became Vice-Principal. His garden gate led directly onto the South Downs which never ceased to provide Tavener with inspiration and strength. More about Robert Tavener and his prints can be seen at www.emmamason.co.uk
