(Hole did very well with artists, Mervyn Peake illustrated Witchcraft In England - more of which in a later post).
It’s an extraordinary book with one foot in England’s haunted mist shrouded history and the other in the shock of the Blitz gas covered second world war. Hole was a fastidious documenter of the dying elements of British folklore and superstition. While Farleigh was a very real modernist draftsman.
In his illustrations below (from Haunted England) you can see the expressionistic and surreal influence of Henry Moore, Paul Delvaux and to a lesser extent Miró.
