Dorothy Mahoney (nee Bishop) entered the RCA School of Design in 1924 with Book Illustration as her principal subject. From 1926-28 she took lettering and illumination as her principal subject under Edward Johnston, to whom, during this period, she became student-assistant. Her subsidiary subjects were wood engraving, pottery, bookbinding and embroidery. It is likely that this rare un- numbered wood engraving dates to this period.
In 1929 she was appointed Deputy Assistant to Edward Johnston, giving lectures, demonstrations, and classes in his absence.
