The Art of Winnie-the-Pooh
How E. H. Shepard Illustrated An IconBook - 2018
Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood are beloved characters in children's literature. But before they appeared in many millions of books and in nearly fifty languages, they started life in the 1920s as the product of a unique collaboration between A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard. For Shepard, it was a process that he relished, creating artwork for new editions right up until his death in 1976 at the age of ninety-six. In this volume, readers will not only discover the story behind this partnership, but also follow the evolution of Shepard's work from those first tentative sketches through to the illustrations we know and love, and even on to the characters' later incarnations at Disney.
