Description - The Artists of "Radio Times" by Martin Baker
From 1923 onwards, until overtaken by the onset of colour photography, the Radio Times commissioned and reproduced work by some of the finest illustrators of the twentieth century -- wood engravings, scraperboard, line drawing and watercolour. Amongst the more well-known names in the list of over 150 artists are those of Edward Ardizzone, Quentin Blake, Val Biro, David Gentleman, Charles Keeping, Paul Nash, W Heath Robinson, Gerald Scarfe, Ronald Searle and C F Tunnicliffe. This book, by Martin Baker, himself one of the select band of artists, will include a section on the History of the Radio Times and its patronage of fine illustrators; the reminiscences of an art student in the l930s and of an art teacher in the sixties, with almost 100 reproductions of some of the well-remembered illustrations.
