The author and artist Edward Ardizzone at a book signing. Surrounded by childrens' literature, a young girl and boy wait patiently for him to sign a copy of his book.
Ardizzone illustrated a number of publications and produced satirical sketches for magazines before writing his own novels, beginning in 1936 with 'Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain'. After the Second World War, during which he served in the anti-aircraft regiment and also as an Official War Artist, Ardizzone went on to publish 'Baggage to the Enemy' (1941) and 'Diary of a War Artist' (1974).
