Product description

Title: Children's Illustration Archive

Text by Alan Livingston and Natalie Rigby

Foreword to the book by Natalie Rigby

Anyone who knew our late director Brian knew how passionate he was about children's illustrations and their importance as a resource for future generations.

Brian's deep knowledge of children's illustrations extended to books on two of the UK's most well known authors and characters: Enid Blyton and Rupert Bear. These two books The Enid Blyton Dossier and The Rupert the Bear Dossier perfectly captured Brian's enthusiasm for these influential and quintessentially British icons.

It is no surprise that the Children's illustration Archive held at Falmouth Art Gallery includes a cover illustration from Enid Blyton's Noddy's Own Nursery Rhymes and memorable illustrations of the world's 'very first really famous bear', Rupert.

The illustration Archive which was developed and supported by Falmouth Decorative and Fine Arts Society and University College Falmouth, now holds an array of delightful images by the UK's most famous artists alongside contemporary illustrations from the last ten years.

The collection features works by leading artists such as Nick Brennan, Walt Disney, Peter Firmin, John Harrold, John Ryan, Paul Spooner, Joel Stewart and Keith Watson. There are images of popular characters such as Pugwash, Bagpuss, Ivor the Engine, Rupert Bear, Yogi Bear and Crazy for Daisy of the Beano.

We hope the archive not only encourages a step back in time to enjoy fond memories from younger years, but also introduces new and old characters to younger generations.

The book is in good condition throughout.

There are some pen marks on the title page.

The rear cover has very minor markings along the hinge.
