Brian Grimwood talks to us about his experiences as a massively successful commercial artist and gives us the inside view based on what he has learnt from founding and running a profitable illustration agency. We will go on to examine the groundbreaking posters of artist Edward McKnight Kauffer, as a new exhibition opens in London, and find out why his work broke the mould. Paul Thurlby will then take us through the prints that make up his retro alphabet and we'll get in the mood for seasonal cheer as a new edition of The Night Before Christmas hits the presses.
Lovers of mid-20th-century illustration can look forward to features on the lithographs and children's tales of Enid Marx. And those delighted by the darker, more surreal imagination of Edward Gorey can discover more about his sets of postcards.
