Presented is a series of 5 vintage finely matted lithograph drawings (produced in 1961) of North Atlantic steamships by Laurence Dunn and published by Hugh Evelyn.  A man of encyclopedic knowledge, Laurence Dunn was a well-known marine artist and writer, who began his lifelong love of ships in Brixham, where he meticulously recorded passing traffic with the exquisitely accurate line drawings which later became something of a trademark. While studying at London’s Central School of Art, his work was noticed by the Southern Railway, which commissioned profiles of its fleet, and this, in turn, led to work for Orient Line, where he also designed the well-known corn-colored hull, and later Thorneycroft, where he helped with shaping draft plans for a new royal yacht. During the Second World War, Dunn worked for naval intelligence at the Admiralty, where his technique did much to improve recognition standards, and greatly expanded his shipping clientele, becoming personally known to many chairmen.  Dunn wrote several books, starting with ship recognition titles that introduced new layout standards, but his best-known work was probably Passenger Liners, which was widely taken up by the travel trade.   In later life, Dunn designed several sets of shipping stamps for the Crown Agents, produced photographic volumes on Thames and Mediterranean shipping, and still found time to enjoy the passing Thames traffic.
