The Artists of Radio Times

Author: Martin Baker Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/01/1999

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.
