A truly comprehensive examination of Louis Wain’s art, beautifully illustrated, it includes many previously unseen images. Now more fashionable than ever, Louis Wain’s work deserves a book that both catalogues his work and explains his life and art, putting it into context, showing too the ceramic figurines that were created from his designs. A timeline, bibliography and details of previous exhibitions make this a valuable resource for any Louis Wain fantatic.
