From the Publisher. Celebrated illustrator and artist Brian Grimwood is often referred to as the man who "changed the look of British illustration." His free and fluid style first characterized the visual culture of the 1960s in iconic images such as those he did for the influential magazine Nova. As his career progressed Grimwood’s illustrations became more and more synonymous with British and Western popular culture and advertising, as evinced, for example, by his covers and identities for the Radio Times, Faber & Faber, WH Smith and Johnny Walker, amongst many others. With an “Introduction” by Brian Grimwood’s friend and peer, Sir Peter Blake, this beautifully illustrated book is the first complete overview of Grimwood’s work, and serves to further reinforce his fundamental contribution to the changing face of illustration since the 1960s—both in Britain and internationally.
