Product Overview

The inspiration behind this title is the Victorian game of describing oneself with images of your favorite things; like a cryptic visual essay, a self-portrait. Forty leading?creative figures?illustrators, writers, musicians, and actors?have been invited to illustrate eight favorite things from a list of 12?their favorite animal, book, clothes, comfort, food, pastime, place, possession, music, shoes, weather,?or their pet aversion. They have been encouraged to use whatever medium they most enjoy to express themselves. Contributors include Quentin Blake, Raymond Briggs, Posy Simmonds, Glen Baxter, David Adjaye, David Gentleman, Shirley Hughes, Mary Fedden, Sir Paul Smith, Peter Capaldi, Raymond Briggs, Posy Simmonds, Ekow Eshun, Eric Carle, David Shrigley, and many others.?Beyond providing singular insight into some of our foremost innovators, this?collection?also?celebrates the art of illustration as an eloquent tradition which, as a means of communication, crosses the boundaries of language, culture, and age.
