Talking about Disastrous Honeymoons…

Monday, May 24th, 2010

I am giving a talk this Thursday from 2-3pm at the Coventry Library, Stirling, in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, to explain exactly how I was inspired to write and illustrate a sequel to “the Owl and the Pussycat”.   It’s free, plus there will be signed copies of the book for sale.  I will do my best to show you how the etchings were produced and will tell you a little bit about Edward Lear as well.  The book, some of the original etchings, and some of my other prints (as well as the blocks and plates they were made from) are on display in the library showcase for the next four weeks.  You can book by calling the Library on 8408 0420 or just turn up!

The desperate climax of the epic tale
