SIGNED BY THE ARTIST

Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved illustrators in the world, creating brilliant and iconic characters for, amongst others, Russell Hoban, Joan Aiken, Michael Rosen, and most famously Roald Dahl. He has won numerous awards over the years, including the Whitbread Award, the Kate Greenaway Medal, and the Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration. In 1999 he was appointed the first ever Children’s Laureate, and in 2005 was created CBE.

In Beyond the Page Blake writes about his projects since 2000, vividly describing his working processes, his collaborators, his travels, and his various projects and commissions, including his ‘illustrated walls’ projects for hospitals in the UK and France. Generously illustrated with 320 full-colour reproductions of his work, this is an unsurpassed collection of Quentin Blake’s achievements, which, together with his fascinating story, make it a must for aficionados and professionals alike.
