Roger Payne (1739-1797) by Arthur George Walker, R.A. 1861-11036. Payne was an innovative and influential bookbinder: "The great merit of Roger Payne lay in his taste — in his choice of ornaments, and especially in the working of them. It is impossible to excel him in these two particulars" (qtd. in Nicholson 26). Exhibition Road façade of the Victoria and Albert Museum.
