Critical acclaim for this unique book
"Anyone looking for a sumptuous Christmas present for a loyal subject and ardent royalist should examine The Daily Life of The Queen: An Artist's Diary. This is the pictorial record of a year in Elizabeth II's life by one of the few artists who can get the Queen's expression right. Michael Noakes shows her doing her job, at home and abroad, in places grave and gay, fascinating and boring, and with a perception photographers canít match. There are over 350 drawings in colour and Mrs Noakes, author of a fine book on Edward Lear, provides the text. I have seen no reviews of this delightful volume out since September, which tells us something about editors, eh?"
Paul Johnson, Spectator
"This is superb book, both text and drawings, and beautifully charts the life of the Monarch and her entourage, in formal and informal situations. As well as making a stimulating book, it seems to me that it is an invaluable - as well as quite a unique - record, which will be of great value to future royal and constitutional historians." Ben Pimlott - Biographer of the Queen and Harold WilsonAbout the Author:
Michael Noakes is a portrait and landscape artist with an international reputation. Vivien Noakes is a teacher and the author of the standard work on Edward Lear. They live in London.
