Description

Jenny Uglow narrates the story of Walter Crane, an intriguing and most prolific figure not only in illustration, but in political culture more broadly.

Uglow expertly weaves a fascinating study of how Crane's art and politics developed from his childhood love of Pre-Raphaelite painting to the influences of Morris and William Blake on the journals, books, banners, pamphlets and postcards he went on to create as he forged a new style for the international socialist movement.

Comprising a staggering range of visual material, Crane's images became a symbolic code that leapt over linguistic boundaries.

This book is a brilliant record of an artist who blended styles and influences like no one before him.
