Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and highly-regarded illustrators of our time. Internationally celebrated for his partnership with Roald Dahl he has also, in a career of 50 years, had extended collaborations with other authors such as Russell Hoban, John Yeoman and Michael Rosen; created children s books of his own; and illustrated adult classics by Cervantes, Cyrano de Bergerac, Voltaire and La Fontaine. In recent years his work has appeared extensively on the walls of museums, hospitals, and other public spaces. Joanna Carey's writes a survey of Blake's oeuvre, at once intimate, perceptive and illuminating, and written with a brio and elan which matches that of her subject.
This a good, clean example of this book. It appears hardly read and is tightly bound, minimal bumping on the cover. For anyone interested in drawing and cartoons.
