Batsford

We maintain a sizeable stock of titles published by Charles Batsford. The Batsford books were among the first to combine the lavish use of photography with authoritative texts. During the ‘golden age’ of the 1930s, 40s and 50s the books were further distinguished by brightly coloured dustwrappers, most notably by Brian Cook and, later, Philip Gough.

The illustrations of Brian Cook have become iconic. His heightened use of colour, in a flat poster style, is much imitated but never surpassed, and all his work is highly collectable.
