In 1922, Cyril Edward Power, a fifty-year-old architect, left his family to live and work with Sybil Andrews, who was twenty-six years his junior. They would be together for twenty years. Both became famous for their dynamic, modernist linocuts. Yet at the same time they looked back to medieval myths and early music, to country ways disappearing from sight.

Sybil & Cyril traces their struggles and triumphs, following them from Suffolk to London, from the New Forest to Vancouver Island, and bringing to life their world of Futurists, Surrealists and pioneering abstraction.

Cyril’s work ‘The Eight’ appears on the cover of SF Issue 18.
