Riassunto: Most of the great British artists of the 20th century have at some time contributed illustrations for books - Stanley Spencer, Paul Nash, John Piper and David Hockney to name but a few. In addition there is a strong tradition of specialist illustrators - Edward Ardizzone and Lynton Lamb for example - whose talents complemented a wide variety of texts. The range of subject matter is enormous - from children's literature to war art, the humorous to the world of fantasy. A lengthy overview of the subject examines the revival of wood engraving, commercial art, book jackets, and children's book illustrations. Each dictionary entry consists of brief biographical details, followed by details of education (especially art schools attended), career and influences. For further reference, notes give titles, dates and publishers of books illustrated, exhibitions held, collections, and bibliographies.
From Library Journal:
Most noted British artists of the 20th century have at some time contributed illustrations for a book. However, such artists make up just a few of the 1000 entries in this dictionary, the result of ten years of research by book collector Horne. Each biographical sketch covers the artist's education (i.e., art school), career, influences, books illustrated, and exhibitions held, together with a brief bibliography. Spectacular illustrations (601 in all, with 157 in color) are included throughout, making this work a visual feast for the reader. The publisher has a reputation for useful as well as beautiful books, and its latest offering is no exception, serving as a sturdy companion to their Dictionary of 19th Century British Book Illustrators (1994). Highly recommended for most reference, book history, or design collections; the latter might also consider a circulating copy.
