Rupert Annual 1972, illustrated by Alfred Bestall.
Alfred Bestall (1892-1986) was one of the great British children’s book illustrators. He was artist and storyteller of the Rupert stories from the 1930s to the 1970s. The quality of his landscapes which appear on the inside covers in his series of Rupert annuals are a delight. The inside pages are just full of his warm and friendly illustrations.
Rupert the Bear annuals are some of the great British children’s books from the 20th century.
This hardback book is in excellent condition. The annual has no name written on the contents page. The corners of the covers are slightly bumped but the inside pages are clean and bright. Not price-clipped.
