2 Anna Russell I'm not making this up, you Know the autobiography of the queen of musical Parody
NT Continuum 1985 Hardcover Excellent Excellent 23cm 
The author describes her unhappy childhood, boarding school education, and career in musical comedy 246 clean well bound pp ed review > With the irrepressible zaniness that has delighted her fans for over 40 years, Russell (dubbed ""the world's funniest woman"" by the London Times) here births an autobiography with as much cheek as her tongue can muster. This ""Queen of Musical Parody"" clearly relishes tracing her eccentric, sometimes aristocratic, occasionally ""batty"" British, Canadian and Australian family, her austere English childhood, as well as her unique career as one of the world's few operatic comediennes. Russell discovered early on that performing made her feel alive and accepted. Despite numerous doubters, she managed to parlay her unsuccessful classical training at London's Royal College of Music (they thought her musically hopeless), her quasi-operatic voice (to her instructors' horror, her true ambition was grand opera), her outrageous sense of humor, and talent for writing and performing saucy parody, into a successful career. In radio, TV, film and stage appearances.

4 Crumb, Robert The Sweeter Side of R Crumb
MQ 2006 Hardcover Very Good Good 28.5cm 
The Sweeter Side of R Crumb is just that. Away with his 'reputation', this book illuminates a side that few see. The pages are filled with diverse images from musical legends to landscapes, to self portraits. The beauty of the images lies not in their execution necessarily, but rather the stories behind them. Some commentary describes the significance of the art, while other images do not need any editorial, letting the art or the dialogue carry it. review >>> A wonderful,but different addition for your Crumb collection. unpaginated but about 120 all crispy white, approx 900g packed for post

13 Thelwell, Norman Wrestling with a Pencil The Life of a Freelance Artist
London Methuen 1986 1st Hardcover Excellent Very Good 25cm 
I can't do better than let you read this warm review >>> Norman Thelwell did in fact sell many of his paintings in his lifetime, but his brilliant artistic talent was not widely known or appreciated. Luckily, he became famous as a cartoonist, so that his income from newspapers, magazines and eventually books, gave him a comfortable lifestyle. He was such a modest man. But to him, drawing came easily. He said "I just draw what's in front of me" and could not understand why his friends were so impressed, and did not have the same ability. From a very young age, he carried a notebook and pencil, and could scarcely stop himself from drawing everything he saw. At the age of about ten, he asked his mother what he could draw, having already done a house, a boat and a car: busy with other things, she said "Oh, go and draw yourself, then!" which was a novel idea to the young boy, who went and did just that. The self-portait of his ten-year old self, is marked (probably by his teacher) as "V Good indeed". This lovely book is packed with many examples of the exquisite drawings and watercolour paintings that he produced throughout his life. As a young man of about 19, he did a black and white pen and ink drawing of the interior of a church: the detail is extraordinary, and this before he'd had any art training at all. After serving in the First World War, he took the opportunity of attending art college as a relatively mature student; then a few years later became a teacher of art. Although he had a lively sense of humour, and his ideas for cartoons came easily to him, he says that his main interest and love throughout his life was the natural world. His depictions of landscapes, trees, flowers and animals are delightful, and they all make this book hugely enjoyable. 192 crisp pp & about 800g packed to post - Thelwell Ardizzone Herge Lofting are Saints of the Pencil in my church.
