Description

Shirley Hughes' rich narrative paintings and finely observed line illustrations are interwoven with fascinating details, capturing the atmosphere of the era. Stunning double-page spreads offer poignant snapshots of life, from an elegant Edwardian picnic to afternoon tea in the trenches during the First World War. Each spread is followed by a 'scrapbook' of the times, featuring fascinating details about domestic life and the events and innovations that shaped the modern world. This is an intimate book of stories within stories, told from the author's own personal experience.
