Are you Sitting Comfortably? The Book Jackets of Edward Bawden
This book celebrates the delightful book jackets and designs of influential artist and printmaker Edward Bawden (1903–1989). During his remarkable 60-year career, Bawden worked with many notable publishers of the 20th century, collaborating on projects as diverse as novels by famous writers, guide books, cookery books and charming stories originally created for his own children.
Showcasing Bawden’s amazing versatility, and often his wry humour, this beautiful cloth-bound book features witty line-drawings, rich colour lithographs and spirited linocuts, all produced for publications ranging from rarely seen brochures to such classics as Gulliver’s Travels and The Hound of the Baskervilles.
