Riassunto: Alfred Bestall was an artist of enormous breadth and talent. As well as his celebrated Rupert Bear stories, his work ranged from cartoons for Punch to romantic, dreamy watercolors for The Tatler. Caroline Bott spent years researching the life of her godfather, drawing on his diaries, sketchbooks, letters, and photos, all of which were bequeathed to her. In recounting his experiences in World War I and his remarkable travels to Egypt and the Middle East, the man who emerges is gentle, generous, and loved by all who met him. Abundantly illustrated with Bestall?s work, this book is an enchanting piece of pure nostalgia and a slice of time gone by.
L'autore: Caroline Bott is Fred Bestall's god-daughter. She has spent many years researching the life of Fred Bestall, and this is her first book for Bloomsbury. She lives with her husband in Milford, Surrey, where they have a permanent exhibition of Fred Bestall's artwork.
