Who is Keith Wingrove

Keith Everard Wingrove (1910–1995) was an art and book collector. He had a strong interest in bookplates and was fortunate enough to have Ex Libris designs created for him by Norman Lindsay and other world-famous artists.

Keith Wingrove was a friend of Norman Lindsay from 1937 until a few months before Lindsay’s death in 1969. The depth of their friendship is evidenced by the staggering 340 letters Lindsay wrote to him.
