the work of edward ardizzone

"...He is also particularly noted for having not just
illustrated the covers and contents of books but
inking the title text and author's name in his own
hand, giving the books a distinctive look on shelves..."


  1. Hey Victoria, I love Edward Ardizzone. My mum read me all the "Tims" when I was a kid and I bought my son some of them in repro form. Ardizzone has A Child's Christmas in Wales too. Great.

    Keep digging for Ardizzone material.
    Edward Ardizzone championed a certain style of illustration which is simple, effective and portrays a realistic and moderate attitude to life.
