Description
Following on from our hugely successful publication of Beyond the Page, we are thrilled to be publishing Words and Pictures in paperback for the first time. This is the fascinating insight into Quentin’s work before Beyond the Page, from the start of his career until 2000. The words describe his approach to the challenges and opportunities of illustration; the pictures, chosen from fifty years of publication, show the progress from his first experience of Punch magazine to the publishing of his own-authored picture books such as Fantastic Daisy Artichoke. Some are familiar, such as those of roald Dahl’s Matilda, or the BFG, while others are from early in his career, and some – roughs, layouts and personal drawings – will be completely new to most readers.

This unusual book is not only a chance to examine the artistic development of one of our most distinguished illustrators, but a guide to the world of illustration as well as all those interested in children’s books, humour, or quite simply the pleasures of drawing.

Quentin Blake was born in 1932. For twenty years he taught at the Royal College of Art, where he was head of the Illustration Department from 1978 until 1986. As a children’s book illustrator he is internationally celebrated, most notably for his long association with Roald Dahl, but has also created picture books of his own and illustrated adult classics by Dumas, Cyrano de Bergerac, Cervantes and Voltaire. He is a CBE and an Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, and lives and works in London, Hastings and the South West of France.
