John Minton: Drawn from Life

A new book on the work of artist John Minton reasserts his hugely significant contribution to British illustration and key role in shaping the look of book design in the post-war years

Published by The Mainstone Press in the centenary year of John Minton’s birth, Martin Salisbury’s new book collects together the artist’s illustrations and cover designs for books, magazines and journals, placing them alongside a host of lesser-known projects for ad agencies, publishers, theatre producers and wallpaper manufacturers.
