"The Best After-Dinner Stories", Selected and Introduced By Tim Heald, Illustrated By Paul Cox (published by The Folio Society Ltd, London 2003) Part 3

The remarkable work of British illustrator Paul Cox (born London 1957). I've been a fan of his work since my student days in the early nineties. I love the retro feel he achieves, which brings to mind magazine and book illustrations from the first half of the 20th century. It's got a lovely rhythm and movement while descriptive and humorous. I find the economy with which he creates his characters and background amazing - the postures and expressions on the faces with just a few brush strokes! Here is his official website again with biography and many more colour examples of his work:
