About this title:

Synopsis: A stunning boxed set facsimile edition of the "little anthology" of favorite poems compiled and illustrted by Rex Whistler, with his friend Stephen Tennant, in his years as a student at the Slade School of Art

Every page of this anthology shows Rex Whistler's new-found delight in verse of a romantic kind: Poe, Keats, Marvell, de la Maare, Emily Dickinson, Shelley, Tennyson, Gray, Edith Sitwell, and others. But, though serious about the poems, he could not, being Rex Whistler, deny himself flippancy on a title page, or in a penciled comment added to Keats' woebegone knight-at-arms. Whistler made this earliest of all his illustrated books for his own pleasure. It was first published almost 60 years after Whistler compiled it, by Hamish Hamilton in 1981, and has been long out of print. This splendid new edition is as alive with the youthful pleasure that first inspired the bright colored margins in 1923. Presented in a cltohbound slipcase, this is a unique gift for Whistler aficionados and poetry lovers alike.

About the Author: Rex Whistler (1905-1944) was one of the most intriguing artists of the interwar years. His work encompassed all areas of art and design, from set design for opera, ballet, and the West End theater to book illustration. He painted moving and memorable portraits, of people and of their houses. And he was the outstanding mural painter of his day. As a 20-year old student at the Slade School he painted a mural which an still be seen on the walls of the restaurant at Tate Britain. At the outbreak of World War II he volunteered to serve in the army. He became a dedicated tank commander in the Guards Armoured Division. He was killed in Normandy on 18 July 1944.

Book Description Pimpernel Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A facsimile edition of the little anthology of favourite poems compiled and illustrated by Rex Whistler in 1923. This is a personal collection, hand-written and embellished, by a young artist who had recently discovered poetry. Rex Whistler was just eighteen and in his first year at the Slade when he began to compile it, using an ordinary ruled exercise book to keep his handwriting straight. The poems are well known and well loved, the watercolours are enchanting. Every page shows Rex Whistler s new-found delight in verse of a romantic kind: Keats, Marvell, de la Mare, Emily Dickinson, Shelley, Tennyson, Gray, Edith Sitwell and others. But, though serious about the poems, he could not, being Rex Whistler, deny himself flippancy on a title page, or in a pencilled comment added to Keats woebegone knight-at-arms. Whistler made this earliest of all his illustrated books for his own pleasure.

This splendid new edition, an exact facsimile of the original, is alive with the youthful pleasure that first inspired the brightly coloured fantasies of 1923. A separate booklet includes Laurence Whistler s afterword to the 1981 edition, a new introduction by Hugh and Mirabel Cecil, and a note from the publishers describing the process of producing the facsimile.
