Product Information

Lear's verse and limericks have enthralled generations of families, but it is as an ornithological illustrator that he first made his name. His poems, and the original artworks that accompany them, form the heart of this beautiful book. This specially illustrated Bicentenary edition provides not only a celebration of Edward Lear's two-hundredth year, but a unique gift for adults and children to enjoy together for centuries to come. Robert Ingpen began studying illustration art and book design over fifty years ago at The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and has designed, written and illustrated more than one hundred works of fiction and non-fiction. In 1986, Ingpen received the highest honour in the children's book world, the Hans Christian Andersen Medal, for his contribution to international children's literature. He has also recently been awarded an honorary doctorate from RMIT and granted Membership of the Order of Australia for services to literature.
