This volume in Thames and Hudson's Illustrators series showcases the work of the late Judith Kerr, one of the world's most beloved authors and illustrators.
Joanna Carey, who had unrestricted access to Judith Kerr and her archive, explores the backstory behind Kerr's popular books and analyses how she works. She draws on a range of never-before-seen visual materials to take readers behind the scenes of Kerr's unforgettable creations.
The result is not only a celebration of Kerr's classic work, but also a thoughtful and intimate account of her long and remarkable career.
