DRAWN TO DRAWING
- John Vernon Lord
I discovered John Vernon Lord when I ran across his blog, johnvernonlord.blogspot.com.
I love his detailed, whimsical, black and white drawings. This book is packed with fabulous samples of his work. I highly recommend it.

John Vernon Lord is a master illustrator of children's and adult books. His famous book The Giant Jam Sandwich has been in print for over forty years.
This collection presents a wealth of previously unpublished material from sketchbooks and diaries along with memoirs from Lord himself. It is an essential chapter in the history of twentieth century illustration and offers an insight into the life and working practices of a master draughtsman.
