Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and most highly regarded illustrators of our time. Internationally celebrated for his partnership with Roald Dahl, he has also collaborated with Russell Hoban, John Yeoman and Michael Rosen. In a career spanning fifty years he has also 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.
This brilliant survey of Blake’s oeuvre - at once intimate, perceptive and illuminating - is written with an exuberance matching that of the subject.
