Introduction by Nigel Suckling.
While he is best known as an illustrator of children’s books, Wayne Anderson has also created an entire, very personal 'other world,' with characters that seem to have stepped straight out of fairy tales. Combined with his prodigious virtuosity, his capacity for developing a dream-like atmosphere and his knack for the telling detail make of him a creator of exceptional images. Fanciful creatures, winged dragons, rats and mice, ravens with huge beaks and sly hedgehogs, as well as strange characters and beautiful damsels… they are all fodder for this artist who conjures magic with pencil and paintbrush.
This book presents the diverse facets of this British artist and illustrator born in 1946: his illustrations for children books and his work on legends and mythology, as well as his advertising images and magazine illustrations.
