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.

About the Author:

Sir Peter Blake RA is an English artist often referred to as the Godfather of British Pop Art, best known for his limited edition prints and the design of the sleeve for The Beatles' album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Blake graduated from the RCA in 1956 having also completed his National Service. He received the Leverhulme Research Award to study popular art whilst traveling Europe and went on to teach for several years at various London Art Schools, all the while working and exhibiting. His first solo show was held in the Portal Gallery in 1962 and since the early 70s his work has regularly been exhibited in one-man shows and retrospectives around the world.

Blake became a Royal Academician in 1981, a CBE in 1983 and in 2002 Blake received a knighthood for his services to art. Retrospectives of Blake's work were held at the Tate in 1983 and Tate Liverpool in 2008.

Review:

"Its style makes the book very readable since the questions and answers are short and cover the subjects of his life and artwork" The City Book Review "The legacy of Grimwood's influence is quite a direct one, beyond style and technique, in that he is the founding director of the Central Illustration Agency, a collective which has Sir Peter Blake, Jeff Fisher, and David Hughes on its books, among some 80 other illustrators" Design Week
