THE SNAIL THAT CLIMBED THE EIFFEL TOWER & OTHER WORK BY JOHN MINTON

JOHN MINTON (1917—1957) may be best known today as a gifted post-war painter of the neo-romantic movement, but he produced some of his most inspired work as a commercial illustrator. Remarkably, even as interest in mid-twentieth-century art and design has grown considerably in recent years, Minton’s prolific output as agraphic artist — achieved during a working life of little more than a. decade — has not gained the recognition it greatly deserves. One hundred years after his birth, this book gathers together for the first time Minton’s commercial graphic work, including many rare and previously unseen pieces, to celebrate a major force in the distinguished history of British illustration.
