Robin Tanner (1904 – 1988), a British etcher and print maker, lived most of his life in Kington Langley about eight miles south of Malmesbury.
He played a major part in the revival of etchings, but unfortunately, this was not enough to keep the wolf from the door and he spent nearly 30 years as Her Majesty’s Inspector of Schools. His most notable work was done for the book, A Wiltshire Village; this was a joint venture with his wife, Heather Sprackman, who wrote the text. They were married in 1931.
