The latest book in Thames and Hudson's excellent 'The Illustrators' series focuses on the wonderful Raymond Briggs. When you think of Briggs you cannot help but picture Fungus the Bogeyman, Father 'Bloomin' Christmas and the Snowman, but this beautifully illustrated title acts as a biography, charting Brigg's early years, influences and emergence as well as lots of content on his iconic children's books.
Encompassing sixty years of Raymond Briggs’s work, from political picture books to children’s classics, (including unpublished pieces and examples of his drawings) this study explores his themes of class, family and loss, and how he demonstrates both emotional power and great technical skill.
