Brian Grimwood: The Man Who Changed the Look of British Illustration is the first book on renowned illustrator and artist Brian Grimwood, whose work has been featured across the board in advertising, design and publishing.

Celebrated illustrator and artist Brian Grimwood is often referred to as the man who "changed the look of British illustration". His free and fluid style first characterised the visual culture of the 1960s in iconic images such as those he did for the influential magazine Nova. As his career progressed Grimwood’s illustrations became more and more synonymous with British and Western popular culture and advertising, as evinced, for example, by his covers and identities for the Radio Times, Faber & Faber, WH Smith and Johnny Walker, amongst many others.

Grimwood was also one of the first illustrators to enthusiastically embrace the then new computer illustration programmes, while at the same time employing traditional artistic methods and materials, both of which continue to characterise his unique and very personal illustration styles. And as founder (in 1983) and Director of the Central Illustration Agency (CIA), London, Grimwood has also been pivotal in the promotion of the work of a host of illustrators from around the world, including Peter Blake, Jeff Fisher and Alan Aldrige—among the 80 or so illustrators on CIA’s books.

With an “Introduction” by Brian Grimwood’s friend and peer, Sir Peter Blake, this beautifully illustrated book is the first complete overview of Grimwood’s work, and serves to further reinforce his
fundamental contribution to the changing face of illustration since the 1960s—both in Britain and internationally.

"If you want to express yourself visually, then learn from one of the masters. Buy this book."
Sir John Hegarty
