Edward Bawden: Scrapbooks

Peyton Skipwith


Through 250 illustrations taken from five fascinating scrapbooks, this book reveals the wonderful world of painter and illustrator Edward Bawden. Edited selections from the books, which contain everything from stamps, photographs, Christmas cards, letters, newspaper cuttings and drawings to other assorted 'odds and ends' uncover his very conscious awareness of Surrealism and the work of professional designers. Some pages are beautiful, some instructive and some baffling, but together they give us an insight into the mind of one of the 20th century's most reclusive and English of artists.
