Miner’s Day – The Coal Culture of B L Coombes and Isabel Alexander, 1945

Isabel Alexander was commissioned by Penguin books in 1944 to illustrate the work of working miner and writer B L Coombes to accompany his book Miner’s Day. In a new edition from the Parthian Modern Wales series many of Alexander’s images are published for the first time as well as Coombes’s original text. Writer and editor Peter Wakelin talks to Professor Dai Smith on a unique contribution to the culture of South Wales.
