"Edwards designs and illustration, for books, magazines, and advertisement, reflect his expertise in many aspects of graphic arts. In 1899, he designed the decorations for The Life of Count Hoym for the Grolier Club. Four years later, he illustrated A Book of Shakespeare's Songs. At the request of John D. Rockefeller, he decorated a privately printed book, The Altoviti Aphrodite. The art dealers Kouchakji Freres and Farim Kouchakji comissioned Edwards, to design Dr. Gustavus Augustus Eisen’s monographs, The Great Chalice of Antioch in Antiquity. Edwards also worked for G. Schirmer, Inc., the music publishers".-schoonoverstudios.com.
