The small display of prints by printmaker and illustrator Helena Markson (1934-2012) at the Walker Art Gallery records the changing landscape of Liverpool in the 1960s. Markson made several trips to Liverpool in the mid-1960s to sketch and photograph different areas of the city.

Her vivid playful landscapes were greatly influenced by her surroundings. Using a combination of intaglio printing techniques such as etching and aquatint, she created varied tone and detail to capture Liverpool's diverse views.

This book tells the story of "a lifetime dedicated to printmaking wherever she lived." and includes full colour images of her work.
