Product story

This book has been selected and reviewed by Michael Prodger for the RA Magazine: Issue 131 Summer 2016.

Quentin Blake had his first cartoons published in Punch while still a schoolboy and went on to become Roald Dahl's indispensable ally and Britain's best loved illustrator. His scratchy penmanship and whimsically subversive humour are instantly recognizable, but the man himself isn't: Kenyon's study of the inimitable Blake, now 83, is richly illustrated and its revealing interviews gives a welcome insight into this most distinctive artist.
