I'm taking some time this evening to look through some of my favourite picture books. Today I have selected some of the older books from my collection. The bold colours, geometric shapes and beautiful textures to be found in the illustrations in these books has hugely influenced my work and continues to inspire me in the images I create. Here are some of my all time favourites...
The Animal Fair, by Alice and Martin Provensen, 1962
Alphabet, by Alain Gree, (2012 publication of 1960s artwork)
The Illiad and The Odyssey, by Alice and Martin Provensen, 1956
