Artist(s) Biographies:

‘What is unsophisticated Art, the vernacular art of England? Barbara Jones has made it her pleasure to seek and find it, describe and explain it, draw it and photograph it in many places, likely and unlikely, for many years past: it is the art of the fairground showman, the painter of canal boats, the weekend bungalow owner, the toy maker, the wedding cake baker.

The range of her work is best shown by a short list from the books thirteen chapters: Taxidermy, Seaside, Tattooing, Toys, Festivals…..’

This very rare and early Barbara Jones book is in very good condition in a fine dust-jacket with just a couple of nicks to the top
