Book Description
First edition **inscribed and dated by Bawden** to Simon Heneage, one of the great champions of British cartoon and caricature art. A collector of these images, Heaneage was also a compiler of the Dictionary of British Cartoonists and Caricaturists, and co-founder, with cartoonist Mel Calman, of The Cartoon Arts Trust. Laid in is Heneage’s bookplate designed by Calman, and a review from The Observer.
Dealer Notes
A collection of lino-cut images by Bawden, of which he writes “I have always enjoyed cutting lino blocks ... It is, I think, very much a designer's medium ...”. As one of the twentieth century’s premier British book illustrators and graphic and commercial artists, he has designed images for everything from dust jackets to underground station tiles to the masthead for The Observer newspaper, including the PBFA logo.
