John Burningham opens with a foreword by Maurice Sendak, before John himself goes on to explore his childhood, his schooling, his beginnings as an illustrator designing posters for London Transport, and then his hugely successful and still-ongoing thirty-five-year career as a picture book author and illustrator. We see notes for his first picture book, Borka, sketches, and colour illustrations from his backlist of over forty books, providing new insights into his work. This is an ideal gift for Burningham fans, and also anyone interested in illustration and children’s books.
