Mark Severin

[Belgium] (b 1906/d 1987)

Mark Severin was the son of Fernand Severin (1876–1931), a poet. Described as one of the most outstanding engravers of his generation, Mark Severin specialised in fine miniature work, including postage stamps and book illustrations. He made close to five hundred bookplates, of which a great number are on erotic subjects; He was also active as an advertisement designer in Great Britain, including posters for Imperial Airways and the London Underground.
In 1935, Severin married Nina Holme, a children's book illustrator ; A catalogue raisonné of Severin's works was published in 1993.
