"While at the RCA, Bliss became a close friend of Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious. Encouraged and inspired by Paul Nash, who was then teaching design at the Royal College of Art, he and Ravilious taught themselves wood engraving. Bliss was well known as a wood engraver and as a historian of wood engraving, although he was also known as a painter of watercolour landscapes. He selected and engraved Border Ballads for Oxford University Press in 1925 and wrote his History of Wood Engraving in 1928. He also illustrated many books throughout his lifetime before returning to painting watercolours in the 1980s. He was elected a member of the SWE 1934, and RBA 1939. He retired to Windley Cottage near Derby and was soon invited to become a Governor of the local art college, Derby School of Art. Bliss died on 11 March 1984".
