Illustration from a collection of architectural carving showing a Griffin by Amor Fenn. The illustration has been completed on tracing paper and finished in a victorian ebonised frame.

Tracing paper offered an attractive hard, smooth working surface. It is also thin and transparent and therefore, easy to reproduce. Thus it is an ideal material for working drawings. Tracing paper, or transparent paper as it is also called, has been used for a wide variety of designs in archives, museums and libraries. Artists were also drawn to tracing paper because of its translucency and relatively low cost.

Amor (1863 to 1933) was the husband to Dora Bard (Dora Fenn), who trained at Goldsmith College, London. He has published two books, Abstract Design: A Practical Manual On The Making Of Patterns For The Use Of Students Teachers Designers And Craftsmen. Secondly, Abstract Design and How to Create It. Both can still be purchased today and show works of his illustration etc.

I have been sourcing antiques and vintage decorative items for 20 years. I primarily started in France. Always looking for new and exciting vintage pieces has taken me through Europe and most recently Eastern Europe. 

Based in Surrey, UK, you can find me regularly exhibiting my collections of antique and vintage finds at London antiques markets, primarily Kempton Antiques market and International Fairs such as Ardingly and Newark.
