Renowned illustrator Quentin Blake's acclaimed Words and Pictures, first published in 2000, is now available in paperback for the first time. “Exuberance is present in everything Blake does" (Telegraph), and in these pages the artist's joy and humor take center stage. Providing fascinating insight into Blake's work from the start of his career until 2000, the book describes his approach to the challenges and opportunities of illustration. Charming images, chosen from 50 years of publication, chart his progress, from his beginnings with Punch magazine to his authored picture books such as Fantastic Daisy Artichoke. Some characters are familiar, such as Roald Dahl's Matilda and the BFG, while others are from early in his career, with roughs, layouts, and personal drawings that will be completely new to most readers.
