Abstract
Illuminated manuscripts, comics, fine bindings, the classics of children's literature, artists' books and their working documents – these are just some of the remarkable items to be found in the National Art Library at the V&A. In a series of thematic chapters, the contributors draw on their wide-ranging expertise to look at the Library's major holdings, an in the process illustrate the main aspects of book design and production over the centuries. With medieval books of hours sitting alongside contemporary paperback novels, the choice is wonderfully varied, from Leonardo da Vinci to Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, Joan of Arc to Judge Dredd, Aesop to Charles Dickens, and Babar the Elephant to Ian Fleming. The one hundred colour plates, accompanied by a clear and informative text, superbly demonstrate the many facets of the art of bookmaking.
