The Artful Dodger; Nick Bantock

The Artful Dodger: Images and ReflectionsThe Artful Dodger: Images and Reflections by Nick Bantock
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you don't know Bantock's art, this is a great way to learn... and if you do know his work, it's a wonderful celebration of what he's done. I had no idea he'd done cover art, or the pop-up books (and now I'm adding those to my To Be Bought list). His explanation of the thought and art process that went into the Griffin & Sabine books as well as his other work is just fascinating, and seeing some of the art again made me think about re-reading and re-viewing what I've read before.

A must buy/must read for the art lover in all of us.
