The Artful Dodger
Images & ReflectionsBook - 2000
The deft artistry and off-centre imagination of Nick Bantock, creator of the groundbreaking Griffin & Sabine trilogy, are admired by a worldwide audience who have devoured millions of his books. The Artful Dodger: Images and Reflections is the first intimate tour of his work. As told by Bantock himself, this cornucopia of anecdotes is funny, idiosyncratic, and full of insight into the creative process. Filled with hundreds of artworks, The Artful Dodger showcases the vast and varied artistic territory Bantock has been exploring since his English art school days, long before his spectacular overnight success. Encompassing early sci-fi paperback covers to abstract paintings, children's books to his recent collages, The Artful Dodger reveals in word and image the range and wit of a modern master.
