Description
Now available in paperback, Pens, Ink & Places is a personal account of the work of the inimitable author and illustrator Quentin Blake. Providing an insight by the artist himself into his own practice and his famous collaborations, it’s a fully illustrated publication with over 200 colour pictures.

Following from the enormous success of Words and Pictures and Beyond the Page, this third volume continues a narrative of visual adventures of unusual diversity.

Pens Ink & Places contains a wealth of material, ranging from the touching series of vignettes for Great Ormond Street Hospital to gigantic drawings for the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings; from the sombre apocalyptic landscapes of Riddley Walker to the energetic fantasy of Billy and the Minpins.

This beautiful volume also includes Blake's unique illustrations made to accompany the works of John Ruskin, La Fontaine, Lucius Apuleius and Beatrix Potter. Blake's commentary - straight from the drawing board - explores the challenges and opportunities in the creation of drawings known around the world, as well as others seen here for the first time.

Quentin Blake (b.1932) is an internationally beloved illustrator and author. He is an inspiration for artists everywhere.
