Publisher's description: Beloved British illustrator Quentin Blake (b. 1932) is perhaps best known in the U.S. for his long partnership with James and the Giant Peach author Roald Dahl. Throughout his remarkable 50-year career, Blake collaborated with other authors such as Russell Hoban, John Yeoman, and Michael Rosen; created children's books of his own; and illustrated adult classics by Cervantes, Cyrano de Bergerac, Voltaire, and La Fontaine. Now, in this collaboration between Tate and London's new House of Illustration, Blake's inimitable work comes to life. A brilliant survey of Blake's oeuvre, at once intimate, perceptive, and illuminating, and written with an exuberance matching that of its subject, Quentin Blake is sure to delight longtime fans of the artist as well as those who have just discovered him.
