Michael Renton, designer, engraver and lettering craftsman died in rather tragic circumstances in July 2001. A large and extremely well-documented archive of correspondence, drawings, rubbings and prints was in serious danger of being destroyed as Michael died intestate. Thanks to the efforts of John Nash and his sensitive negotiations with family connections, solicitor and print dealers a larger part of the archive has been left to The Edward Johnston Foundation. The collection is currently in storage awaiting cataloguing and proper accessibility. A selection of Michael's wood engraved and hand-drawn lettering appears below and will be expanded as the process of scanning progresses. Please click on images for enlarged view.
