Next issue
This autumn we will discover the illustrations of George Sheringham, in particular those he completed on six silk panels to illustrate a poem by Baron Howard de Walden. We will return to classic Christmases of times past when we look at John Leech’s illustrations for Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, and will explore two unpublished works for children when we find out about a picture book created by Walter Crane after the death of his young daughter, now in the V&A, and learn about a set of illustrations for an unknown story created by Expressionist artist Otto Schubert.
Simon Cooke will continue his series focusing on the stories behind specific illustrations when he considers the psychological insights that Barnett Freedman evoked in his Gothic illustrations for books such as Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre and Walter de la Mare’s Ghost Stories. Dark themes of a more realistic nature will come to the fore when we view Arthur Wragg’s depictions of social deprivation and poverty in industrial Britain and look at the way he used his books to preach the need for social revolution.
We will also talk to the multi-talented Ian Beck about his work and his career and will visit an exhibition of work by the ever-popular Harold Jones.
