The Favershams

£19.99

Product description

London Gollancz, 1982. FIRST EDITION 1982, 4to, 285 x 205 mm, 11¼ x 8¼ inches, colour illustrated boards, about 30 pages.
Book Condition. Fine issued without dustwrapper. No inscriptions

Pictorial account of the somewhat uneventful life (apart from a wounded knee, some rock climbing and a spell in India) of this tranquil family whose head was born in 1851. Although all the characters are short and stocky with flat topped heads, the illustrations are enchanting, very finely drawn and painted with lots of local colour and minute detail. The book with its 15 full page colour illustrations and 15 half page is a sort of photo album.

Gerrard (b. Lancashire 1935) trained at Salford School of Art. In 1979 he gave up teaching to paint full time. The Favershams was his second book and won the New York Times Best Illustrated children's book of the year in 1982 and the Bologna Children's Book Fair prize in 1983. The artist described his work as 'remorselessly whimsical'
