Description

DESCRIPTION: What a delightful book. Very unusual. Recipes for a children's party written just after the war with beautiful drawings for children by Emil Weiss to illustrate. In fact the book is probably more sought after because of his drawings. A famous illustrator and press artist, Weiss came to England in In 1938 but was denied a working permit until the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia, whereupon his status changed from visitor to refugee. His personal version of English and his European drawing style made it difficult to find work so at 43 he started from zero. He did whatever he could during those difficult years: wartime propaganda posters… illustrations for Czech publications… portrait sketches for the Daily Telegraph. In 1948 he emigrated to the US and became the Monitor’s artist-reporter covering national events and politicians both on assignment as well as freelance until his death in 1965. He wrote 40 children's book including this one with Karla Weiss (Charlotte) BOOK CONDITION: Good a little bumping to the corners BINDING TYPE: Hardback LANGUAGE: English PRINTING INFO: PUBLISHER: Bruce Publishing YEAR: 1946 PLACE OF PUBLICATION: London: 4to - over 9¾ - 12” PAGES: 77
