Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Quentin Blake is a collaboration between Tate and the House of Illustration, published to coincide with the gallery's inaugural exhibition, Inside Stories, a landmark show by Quentin Blake.

Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and highly-regarded illustrators of our time. Internationally celebrated for his partnership with Roald Dahl he has also, in a career of fifty years, had extended collaborations with other authors such as Russell Hoban, John Yeoman and Michael Rosen, created children s books of his own, and illustrated adult classics by Cervantes, Cyrano de Bergerac, Voltaire and La Fontaine.

In recent years his work has appeared extensively on the walls of museums, hospitals, and other public spaces. Joanna Carey s writes a brilliant survey of Blake's oeuvre, at once intimate, perceptive and illuminating, and written with a brio and élan which matches that of her subject.

An insightful book on Quentin Blake and his art 11 Jan 2013
By Daniel P. Abernathy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We enjoyed our trip to the Eric Carle Museum a few years ago, but being several hundred miles away, we can't possible get to each exhibition. The exhibit books are well done and are a comprehesive review of the exhibit. This is not a high gloss review of the pictures, but it is an insightful review of the exhibit and information on the illustrator.

Quentin Blake is no doubt the master of simple, but delightful pictures that turn the wonderful words of Roald Dahl into an exciting journey.
