EDWARD ARDIZZONE, A BIBLIOGRAPHIC COMMENTARY.
First edition. When Edward Ardizzone passed away in 1979, he was one of the best-loved artists (and authors) in the English-speaking world. He illustrated more than 200 books and pamphlets, a good number of which he also wrote, as well as designed dust jackets and ephemera for a range of patrons. Brian Alderson first published a checklist of this work in The Private Library in 1972. Since then, with the co-operation of the artist and his family, he has extended and expanded the coverage of the original list, describing for the first time in a full-scale bibliography Ardizzone's books, dust jackets, commercial work and ephemera, with notes on his periodical contributions, war art, prints, posters and bookplates. Appendices reprint articles by Ardizzone himself and detail the history of two favorite titles - Peacock Pie and Peter Pan - and reproduce Gabriel White's memorial tribute to the artist. Includes a four page color section. SALES RIGHTS: Available in North & South America from Oak Knoll Books. Available outside North & South America from The British Library.
