Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most of the great British artists of the 20th century have at some time contributed illustrations for books - Stanley Spencer, Paul Nash, John Piper and David Hockney to name but a few. In addition there is a strong tradition of specialist illustrators - Edward Ardizzone and Lynton Lamb for example - whose talents complemented a wide variety of texts. The range of subject matter is enormous - from children's literature to war art, the humorous to the world of fantasy. A lengthy overview of the subject examines the revival of wood engraving, commercial art, book jackets, and children's book illustrations. Each dictionary entry consists of brief biographical details, followed by details of education (especially art schools attended), career and influences. For further reference, notes give titles, dates and publishers of books illustrated, exhibitions held, collections, and bibliographies.

Book News Annotation:

Contains information about some 1,000 British illustrators whose work was published during the first 70 years of the 20th century. Introductory articles on such topics as commercial art, wood engravings, and children's book illustrators are followed by entries on individual illustrators. Biographical details of each artist are followed by lists of books and journals illustrated, galleries and museums where the artist's work has been exhibited and collected, and a detailed bibliography. Includes some 300 b&w and 160 color illustrations.
