The work of Edward Ardizzone, probably the best-known British illustrator of his generation, is prolific and instantly recognisable. This book provides the first full overview of Ardizzone's work since the artist's death, analysing in turn his activity as an artist, writer and teacher, as well as incorporating fascinating biographical detail.

Author Biography - Alan Powers

Alan Powers graduated from Amherst College in 1966 and earned his Ph.D. in English from the University of Minnesota in 1974. Since that year he has been on the faculty at Bristol Community College, where he was Chairman of the English Department from 1988-1992. A scholar of Renaissance Italian, English, and American literature, he has published and lectured widely on Shakespeare, Giordano Bruno, Seventeeth Century and Romantic poetry, as well as Emily Dickinson and other American writers. Interested as much in local history as language, his interests include research and publishing on early American New England street games. He has held many fellowships and prizes for research and his own poetry, and in 2001 made a guest appearance in James Wolpaw's documentary film on Emily Dickinson. Powers lives in Westport, Massachusetts, with his wife, the artist Susan Mohl Powers.
