Great Modern Writers A to Z book by Andy Tuohy and Caroline Taggart
Artist and graphic designer Andy Tuohy turns his hand to the world of modern literature in this new instalment of the A-Z series. Rendered in his distinctive style, this new book features portraits of 52 key modern writers significant for their contribution to literature, with a whole host of names from across the world including Simone de Beauvoir, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Kazuo Ishiguro, Doris Lessing, Salman Rushdie and Vladimir Nabokov. Best-selling author Caroline Taggart provides a crib sheet of everything you need to know about each author: why they are important in the field of literature, a list of their must-read books, and a surprising fact or two about them. Alongside Andy's portraits, the book features additional imagery, including book covers and author photographs.
Each book is signed by the artist.
