"King Lear", Ian Pollock, part2

There are 160 pages in this book - faithful to the original Shakespeare text - and each picture is almost like an artwork in its own right. It must have taken the artist ages to finish the whole story. The execution of the illustrations appears to be easy but there is a lot of work on the details of the costumes, the dramatic effect of the lighting and the compositions. To my surprise the book is still available (new) today and well worth having for any Ian Pollock fans.


  1. Dumb question, but is Ian related to Jackson?

  2. Don't think so - Ian is British, born in 1950. Here's a short biography link:

  3. Merci,
    ça fait plaisir de le revoir !
