“Poet engraver of New England”, Thomas W Nason was a self taught print-maker from Lyme Connecticut who dedicated his art to representing the romanticized landscape of New England. His work was frequently paired with and served as illustrations to writers like Thoreau and Emerson. I found these prints in a book which has both Emerson’s Nature and Thoreaus essay Walking.
