This is largely because so many of his watercolours (he hardly ever painted in oils) have become available in a series of books, 'Ravilious in Pictures' edited by his son James, as well as in high-quality prints and greetings cards.

The war through artists' eyes; Conclusion: English Eden with 'a biting edge'; Chronology; Public Collections; Bibliography; Acknowledgements and Image Credits; Index. A joyful and celebratory gift book devoted to the work of the much-loved English artist Eric Ravilious (1903-1942) and the influence of natural forms and themes in his work. The village is known for its textile heritage, and Tschudi would briefly experiment with designs for textiles when she put certain of her images onto pillow and cushion cases. Here's a selection of the original lithographs, printed at The Curwen Press in 1938 (and not to be confused with the modern digital/giclée reproductions in circulation). Although the book was not a limited edition, the destruction of the lithographic plates during the Blitz meant that only 2000 copies were ever printed.

As a student he visited Fry’s (1910) Post-Impressionist exhibition at the Grafton Galleries, and whilst he was enthralled by the use of colour, he judged the work neglectful of content. The fifth chapter looks at his work as a war artist when he was attached to the navy and the army, moving around Britain and then beyond, culminating in his fatal last flight in Iceland in 1943.It also provokes the inevitable emotions one feels when considering the output of one who died too young,as well as tantalising questions about the work which might have been. In a substantial and wide-ranging examination of the making of High Street, art historian Dr Alan Powers places the book in historical context, giving new and significant insights into its conception, production and publication. White Horses is the recreation of the 'lost' Puffin Picture Book that Ravilious was working on during the Autumn of 1939 and although reached dummy stages was ultimately abandoned.
