Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and most highly-regarded illustrators of our time. Internationally celebrated for his partnership with Roald Dahl he has also collaborated with other authors such as Russell Hoban, John Yeoman and Michael Rosen. In a career spanning fifty years he has created children's books of his own and illustrated adult classics by Cervantes, Cyrano de Bergerac, Voltaire and La Fontaine. In recent years his work has appeared extensively on the walls of museums, hospitals, and other public spaces. Joanna Carey's essay is a brilliant survey of Blake's oeuvre, at once intimate, perceptive and illuminating, and written with an exuberance matching that of her subject.--Tate Publishing
