About this book
A collection of some of Cook's most iconic illustrations from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. Describing his working process, Cook then goes on to talk about his new printing processes, design principles and practical methods of application. 120 illustrations.
The illustrations of Brian Cook from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s have become iconic. His heightened use of colour, in a flat colour poster style, is much imitated, but never surpassed. His jacket covers for the Batsford series of books that celebrated British life are now very collectable.
