    It's a real shame this book is currently out of print. It took me almost three years to track down a copy of this book, but it was well worth the wait.

He provides examples of his earliest work for Punch magazine all the way through to his current picture books for children. He explains his working methods, his studio set up, how he goes about brainstorming ideas and there are hundreds of preliminary sketches and rough layouts for dozens of his projects. This book is like a 200-page master class with one of the world's greatest living illustrators. Jonathan Cape, please put this book back into print!

    Even before I got my grubby little hands on this book I knew Quentin was my role model. After reading it, I am more inspired than ever! His honesty and humour reflect perfectly through his illustrations, and his ability to bring a story to life through pictures is fantastic. For die hard illustrator appreciators, give this book a go!
