Sketches for Friends
Available in Stock
Best remembered for his countless drawings for novels by Trollope and Eleanor Farjeon, Edward Ardizzone (1900–79) was one of the greatest illustrators of the 20th century. This charming volume reproduces dozens of his letters, all illustrated with delightfully informal sketches and watercolours, which reveal the artist's warm and affectionate family life, and his sharply humorous eye for the human eccentricity encountered on his travels in Italy, North Africa and India. Slightly off-mint.
