George A. Walker

In his latest book Blurring the Boundaries: Images from the Neocerebellum George Walker presents wood engravings inspired by dreams. Walker has been creating artwork and books and publishing at a variety of private presses since 1984. For over twenty years he has exhibited his wood engravings and limited edition books internationally. Among many book projects, he illustrated two hand-printed books by the American novelist Neil Gaiman and has also illustrated the first Canadian editions of Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass (from Cheshire Cat Press). Walker was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy of Art in 2002 for his contribution to the cultural area of Book Arts. He lives in Toronto. Blurring the Boundaries: Images from the Cerebellum was recently published by Porcupine’s Quill.
