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.
