Limited to an edition of 40 copies. The life of artist Joan Hassall is celebrated through the many letters she wrote to family and friends throughout her life. Her attitude toward life, her beliefs, her love of music and art, her frail health, and her devotion to cats all are laid out here in her own inimitable style. Beginning with her days at school and ending just days before her death, the diverse contours of her life and activities are revealed to all who wish to make the acquaintance of this remarkable artist. In addition to sixty wood engravings, a wide range of her other work, dust jacket designs, line drawings, photographs, stamp designs, and a variety of ephemeral pieces are presented, many in full color. This edition contains an additional group of engravings, printed as an extra section in the book.
