Product description

John Burningham opens with a foreword by John's U.S. contemporary, Maurice Sendak, the creator of "Where the Wild Things Are". This is followed by an appreciation of John's work by the critic Brian Alderson, before John himself goes on in his own words to explore his childhood, his schooling at Summerhill, his beginnings as an illustrator designing posters for London Transport, and then his hugely successful, award-winning and still-ongoing career as a picture book author and illustrator. We see developmental notes for his first picture book, "Borka", sketches, and lavish colour illustrations from his backlist of over 40 books. Providing new insights into his work, this is an ideal gift for Burningham fans, and for anyone interested in illustration.
