Pallant House Gallery, 2017 260 × 206 mm, 192 pp
Celebrating the centenary of the birth of John Minton (1917–1957), this was the first fully-illustrated monograph of the much-admired British artist. Accompanying a major exhibition at Pallant House Gallery in Chichester, it drew together an impressive collection of paintings, drawings, book illustrations, theatre designs, posters and lithographs from private and public collections across Britain and abroad.
Best known for his iconic illustrations and covers for Elizabeth David’s cookbooks, Minton was celebrated as the leading illustrator in post-war Britain.
