This comprehensive survey of the career of Edward Bawden (1903-89) accompanies a major exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery and brings together his most significant work in watercolour, printmaking, design and illustration.

Bawden began his career in the 1920s as a precociously talented designer and illustrator, and he successfully reinvented himself time and again as the decades passed while always retaining a distinctive freshness, humour and humanity in his work. The book explores in depth the most significant creative periods of Bawden's life and is fully illustrated throughout.
