Whether he was creating book illustrations, advertising posters, or college murals, Edward Bawden (1903–1989), a one-time Official War Artist who documented WWII in watercolor, found his greatest muse in the city of London. This beautiful book, with almost 200 striking images, shows Bawden’s unique view of the city in prints, posters, drawings, paintings, murals, and advertising material. The illustrations include early work executed while a student in the early 1920s; the Morley College murals carried out in partnership with the well-known artist Eric Ravilious; advertising work for London Transport, Fortnum & Mason, Twinings Teas, Shell, and Westminster Bank; Bawden’s famous mural for the Lion & Unicorn Pavilion at the 1951 Festival of Britain; and some of his finest series of linocuts including London Monuments and London Markets. Praise forEdward Bawden's London: “With their keen eyes and dramatic compositions, Capa, Brassaї, André Kertész, László Moholy-Nagy, Martin Munkásci, and forty-five of their less-famous contemporaries put an indelible stamp on journalism, fashion, and war photography. Their rich black-and-white images are elegantly reproduced in this arresting book.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

The Benezit Dictionary of British Graphic Artists and Illustrators consists of over 3,000 entries on a range of British artists, from medieval manuscript illuminators to contemporary cartoonists. Its core is comprised of the entries focusing on British graphic artists and illustrators from the 2006 Benezit Dictionary of Artists with an additional 90 revised and 60 new articles. The collection highlights the rich history of British printmaking-both fine art prints and mass print media-and related activities in the production and illustration of printed books and manuscripts. Because of Benezit's focus on European artists of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, this collection provides comprehensive coverage of British graphic art and illustration during their most significant periods of development. Entries provide straightforward, concise narratives of the artists' lives and careers, and many entries include bibliographies, auction sale records, exhibition histories, and museum collection holdings. This collection also includes over 200 images of artists' signatures. The Benezit Dictionary of British Graphic Artists and Illustrators serves as a compact, affordable alternative to the fourteen-volume Benezit for specialists and collectors in the fields of British art and/or printmaking.

This book is about designing for food. It explores three fast transforming urban sites in London, centred on the regenerating spaces of Borough, Broadway and Exmouth Markets. It suggests that ‘food quarters’ have emerged in each place, modelling new forms of interconnection between physical design and social processes in which food-related renewal is at the heart. Using case study research, informed by design, morphological and social science techniques, the book explores how the interplay between compact city design and social practices focused on food, strongly influences the making of everyday life in these places. It demonstrates that the quarters have at once enriched the experience of food and eating, and increased urban sustainability and conviviality in and around previously moribund food spaces, while paradoxically contributing to gentrification effects. The book frames this experience within more spatially dominant approaches to city design, which seem to close off convivial food options and choices that would support a more satisfying and resilient urban life. The book draws some conclusions about the complexities of designing and planning for food-led renewal that might apply more broadly to other places in London and potentially to other cities in future.

This book draws on Edward Bawden's delightful illustrations, posters and linocuts of Kew Gardens made over 60 years. It presents a light-hearted social history of Kew, peopled with the many Hanoverian Kings, Queens and Princes who resided there, as well as courtiers such as the 3rd Earl of Bute, Joseph Banks Fulke Greville and their proteges including William Chambers, William Aiton, Fanny Burney and Sir William Hooker. Alongside Bawden's posters and linocuts, the book is illustrated with the contemporary caricatures of Thomas Rowlandson, George Cruikshank and James Gillray as well as botanical illustrations by Franz Bauer, Evelyn Dunbar and others. The book also reproduces in full Bawden's previously unpublished manuscript guide to Kew Gardens, drawn by the artist when he was just 19, and the redrawn illustrations and maps in Robert Herring's 1930 book Adam and Evelyn at Kew.

This book brings together forty-five of Edward Bawden's watercolours from World War II, now housed in the Imperial War Museum collection and many published here for the first time, to produce a fascinating insight into Bawden's view of the Middle East. Alongside these evocative images the text traces Bawden's life and career, in particular his time as an Official War Artist; a chapter by Robin O'Neill sets the political context in which the allied forces and Bawden found themselves during the war, and sketches the drastically changed political scenery since then; finally, we hear from Bawden in his own words through two articles originally published in The Geographical Magazine in 1945.

A delightful selection of Edward Bawden's linocuts for colouring, from lions to princesses! This charming colouring book features a selection of some of Bawden's most endearing linocuts, freshly printed for a new generation to enjoy. From the late 1950s Bawden used linoleum as an alternative to traditional ink and paper drawing, and the practice did much to further his unique, graphic style. The cuts in this selection illustrate a wide range of activities and characters from history and fairytales. From London monuments, to lions and tigers, to princesses and knights, there is something for everyone.

In this groundbreaking examination of British war art during the Second World War, Brian Foss delves deeply into what art meant to Britain and its people at a time when the nation's very survival was under threat. Foss probes the impact of war art on the relations between art, state patronage, and public interest in art, and he considers how this period of duress affected the trajectory of British Modernism. Supported by some two hundred illustrations and extensive archival research, the book offers the richest, most nuanced view of mid-century art and artists in Britain yet written. The author focuses closely on Sir Kenneth Clark's influential War Artists' Advisory Committee and explores topics ranging from censorship to artists' finances, from the depiction of women as war workers to the contributions of war art to evolving notions of national identity and Britishness. Lively and insightful, the book adds new dimensions to the study of British art and cultural history.

It is impossible to imagine London without the Tube: the beating heart of the city, the Underground shuttles over a billion passengers each year below its busy streets and across its leafy suburbs. The distinctive roundel, colour-coded maps and Johnston typeface have become design classics, recognised and imitated worldwide. Opening in 1863, the first sections were operated by steam engines, yet throughout its long history the Tube has been at the forefront of contemporary design, pioneering building techniques, electrical trains and escalators, and business planning. Architects such as Leslie W. Green and Charles Holden developed a distinctively English version of Modernism, and the latest stations for the Jubilee line extension, Overground and Elizabeth line carry this aesthetic forward into the twenty-first century. In this major work published in association with Transport for London, Tube expert Oliver Green traces the history of the Underground, following its troubles and triumphs, its wartime and peacetime work, and the essential part it has played in shaping London’s economy, geography, tourism and identity. Specially commissioned photography by Benjamin Graham (UK Landscape Photographer of the Year 2017) brings the story to life in vivid portraits of London Underground’s stations, tunnels and trains.
