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 240 full-colour
reproductions of his inimitable 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.
