Shepard’s War: E. H. Shepard, the Man Who Drew Winnie-the-Pooh

£25.00

Description

Shepard’s War is an intimate, illustrated narrative of the First World War as seen through the mainly unpublished work of E. H. Shepard, who served as a frontline officer from 1915 to the end of the war. With over a hundred pieces of original artwork, ranging from caricatures of Shepard’s fellow officers to sketches made during battle, technical drawings and commentary from Shepard’s own wartime notebooks and diaries, this extra-ordinary collection offers a unique insight into the experiences of a talented artist yet humble man, describing a personal and moving journey through the Great War.

Written by James Campbell.
