Harold Copping illustratates Quills by Walter C Rhoades

As we have recently had a guest post from the King of All Things School-Story on the blog I thought this seemed an appropriate follow on. I don't normally buy school story books myself but flicking through this one in a bookshop the other day I couldn't help but notice how superior the illustrations were. Only pencil drawings and yet executed with real skill in both draughtsmanship and characterisation that seemed a cut above the usual. When I got it home I was pleased to discover that Harold Copping is indeed well known and well regarded although mainly for his Biblical illustrations.
