Walter Crane, Hardback Book

Walter Crane Hardback

Part of the The Illustrators series



Jenny Uglow narrates the story of Walter Crane, an intriguing and most prolific figure not only in illustration, but in political culture more broadly.

Uglow expertly weaves a fascinating study of how Crane's art and politics developed from his childhood love of Pre-Raphaelite painting to the influences of Morris and William Blake on the journals, books, banners, pamphlets and postcards he went on to create as he forged a new style for the international socialist movement.

Comprising a staggering range of visual material, Crane's images became a symbolic code that leapt over linguistic boundaries.

This book is a brilliant record of an artist who blended styles and influences like no one before him.
