"Essential Knowledge For All", Illustration by Leslie S. Haywood (Odhams Press Limited, London 1947)
This was the only illustration by Leslie S. Haywood in this book. There's something special about it I think - symbolism, mysticism, surrealism or just a very well drawn image. It made me buy the book at once even though I have dozens of similar books on general knowledge from the 30s and 40s... Can't find any information on the artist other than one or two titles of children's books he illustrated.
