Description
From 1973 to 1975, Arthur Thrall and his family lived in London, both for his sabbatical and for a year at the London campus of Lawrence University, Wisconsin, for whom he taught. While there, Arthur met independent music engraver Jack Thompson, who was contracted by Boosey and Hawkes, the world's largest classical music publisher at the time. They quickly became friends. In exchange for one of Arthur's music-themed prints, Thompson gave his friend a small collection of musical-note punch tools, which became a recurring element in Arthur's work.
