The illustrator and printmaker, Paul Hambleton Landacre was born in Columbus, OH, on July 9, 1893. He attended Ohio State University as a horticulture major, but a mysterious infection left him partially crippled and cut short his academic career. He moved to Southern California with his widowed father in 1916 and took work as a commercial illustrator. From 1923 to 1925 he attended Otis Art Institute. His increasing skill at wood engraving and linocut, particularly landscpe subjects, was first recognized by the Los Angeles bookseller, Jake Zeitlin. During the 1930’s he produced editions of single prints and illustrations for books published mostly by local fine presses. He derived some income from the Landacre Association, a subscription service organized by his friends. Increasing commissions for book illustrations from about 1942, drew his attention away from art prints, and from 1953 until his death he taught at Otis Art Institute.
