Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe, illustrated by Arthur Wragg.
Arthur Wragg (1907-1976) was a unique artist. His black and white style of illustration is often full of symbols and quirks that draw the viewer into his dark world. He was a socialist and pacifist and avoided the world of fine art, choosing to produce work that spoke to common people rather than art-lovers. He produced cartoons, posters, advertising and many book illustrations.
Reading Moll Flanders along with Arthur Wragg’s full page images and also his free-flowing sketches is a delight.
