The Art of Graeme Base explores Graeme’s life and work, and includes more than 200 illustrations, many never before published. In this delightful account, former Penguin publisher Julie Watts takes a loving and informed look at what went on behind the making of each of Graeme’s books, as well as the creation of his various musical and screen works.
Graeme Base’s lively reflections, taken from extensive interviews for the book, and his caption commentaries on each illustration will enrich your understanding of how he creates his imaginary worlds. The book invites readers of all ages to share in the creative journey and to witness the development of Graeme’s inimitable work.
Graeme talks about picking through his artworks and the logistics involved in the creation of The Art of Graeme Base.
