Sydney-based P. Neville Barnett (1881–1953) wrote and published twenty-four limited edition books in his lifetime. Barnett, in his role as a dealer, author and book designer, was part of the Sydney milieu of print art enthusiasts in the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Barnett was acquainted with the likes of Lionel Lindsay, Hardy Wilson, Jim Tyrrell and Sydney Ure Smith and nurtured an early interest in the print art of bookplates that extended to books on Japanese woodblock prints, his other great passion.
