Following on from our hugely successful publication of Beyond the Page, we are thrilled to be publishing Words and Pictures in paperback for the first time. This is the fascinating insight into Quentin's work before Beyond the Page, from the start of his career until 2000. The words describe his approach to the challenges and opportunities of illustration; the pictures, chosen from fifty years of publication, show the progress from his first experience of Punch magazine to the publishing of his own-authored picture books such as Fantastic Daisy Artichoke. Some are familiar, such as those of Roald Dahl's Matilda, or the BFG, while others are from early in his career, and some - roughs, layouts and personal drawings - will be completely new to most readers. This unusual book is not only a chance to examine the artistic development of one of our most distinguished illustrators, but a guide to the world of illustration as well as all those interested in children's books, humour, or quite simply the pleasures of drawing.
