Description - Beyond the Page by Quentin Blake

Quentin Blake (b. 1932) is one of the best-known and best-loved illustrators in the world, having created brilliant and iconic characters for Roald Dahl, Russell Hoban, Joan Aiken, and Michael Rosen. He has won numerous awards, including the Whitbread Award, the Kate Greenaway Medal, and the Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration. In Beyond the Page, Blake writes about his works since 2000, vividly describing his processes, his collaborators, his travels, and his various projects and commissions, including his "illustrated walls" projects for hospitals in Great Britain and France. Generously illustrated with 240 full-color reproductions of his inimitable work, this is an unsurpassed collection of Blake's achievements, which, together with his fascinating story, make it a must for aficionados and professionals alike.

Author Biography - Quentin Blake

Quentin Blake taught for many years at the Royal College of Art, where he was head of the Illustration Department from 1978 to 1986. As well as being known for his collaborations with writers such as Russell Hoban and Roald Dahl, his own creations, such as Mister Magnolia, have contributed to his reputation as one of the world's leading illustrators and an inspiration for artists everywhere. He was, in the words of The Guardian, 'already a national institution' when he was appointed the first Children's Laureate in 1999. He is particularly engaged in enabling art to reach a young audience, as was the case with the immensely popular touring exhibition 'Tell Me a Picture' held at the National Gallery in 2001.
