Brian Grimwood: The Man Who Changed the Look of British Illustration

Description

Brian Grimwood: The Man Who Changed the Look of British Illustration is the first book on renowned illustrator and artist Brian Grimwood, whose work has been featured across the board in advertising, design and publishing industries.

His free and fluid style first characterized the visual culture of the 1960s in iconic images such as those used in magazines including Nova, Image, Playboy, Nave, Forum, New Scientist and Economist. 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.
