Next issue
In our winter issue, Simon Cooke continues his series of articles focusing on the stories behind, and meaning of, one specific illustration, and considers John Everett Millais’ illustration “The Death of the Old Year”. This was created for an edition of Tennyson’s Poems, published by Edward Moxon and now famous as a Pre-Raphaelite masterpiece. He looks at why the artists’ response to Tennyson was so radical and what Millais brings to this illustration in particular.
We will then turn to a European classic when we uncover the history of Heinrich Hoffmann’s Der Struwwelpeter. We will find out about the author and look at why it proved such a favourite. Other children’s classics come under the spotlight when we talk to Pat Hutchins, author and illustrator of the delightful and hilarious Rosie’s Walk (among many other books), and revisit the eternally popular illustrations for Winnie the Pooh by Ernest Shepard.
More adult illustration will not be neglected and we will explore the French satirical paper L’Assiette au Beurre. Then, in future issues we’ll talk to the multi-talented Ian Beck and will find out about the fantasies and satires of Sidney Sime. We’ll consider the legacy of the Puffin Picture Books and find out about the children’s books of Edward Gorey. All this, plus work by new graduates, the best books, events and exhibitions and the work of fine presses.
