(Filler text temporarily taken from Syracuse University's William and Marie Watson Paradise Press Collection description.) The plentiful and beautiful artwork in the Keepsakes came from engravings from Watson's Easy Hill Press days and from his extensive collection of original woodcuts, including many by Thomas Bewick. Bewick was one of Watson's favorite illustrators and many of the Keepsakes feature his woodcuts (see for example the 2002 holiday issue). Other artists include John DePol (the 1999 holiday Keepsake features his wood engraving commissioned by Watson for the Easy Hill edition of Mark Twain's On the Art of Writing), Edward Gorey (1992 holiday, March 1999), and William Blake (2000 holiday). On some of the items Bill used letterhead nameplates designed for himself and Marie in the 1960s by well-known English engraver, designer, and typographer Reynolds Stone (Stone's work also appears in the 1997 and 2001 holiday issues, June 1999, spring 2005, and on Watson's business card).
