Judy Brook’s memoir of this gentle pacifist reveals the man behind the forgotten reputation – humane, self-doubting, humorous, yet driven by a fierce anger at the social injustice, human folly and commercial greed he saw all around him. It was an anger that produced a series of powerful, searing illustrations for his own books, such as Jesus Wept and Thy Kingdom Come, and commissions for others, including Oscar Wilde’s The Ballad of Reading Gaol, for which he drew on his experience as a prison visitor during the war years.
