The books from the Golden Cockerel Press (after 1933), "stand with Sir Francis Meynell's at the Nonesuch Press as examples of excellence for any printer or publisher now, their typography varied but always attractive, paper and binding giving pleasure each time, and a constant stream of experiment and achievement in book illustration...
"The work of the engravers of Golden Cockerel books gives the Press its greatest distinction and made a whole period of woodcut revival. Looking through the books now... one is impressed by the skill and beauty... These books were a happy house for talent of the time, with work from David Jones, Dorothea Braby, Eric Gill, Gwenda Morgan, Eric Ravilious, John Buckland-Wright and Blair Hughes-Stanton." -Colin Franklin, The Private Presses
