For much of the period from the 1920s to the 1960s the BBC not only dominated broadcasting, but became a major publisher. The majority of these publications carried illustrations, not only to attract buyers by their covers, but in the inner pages as well. In the years covered by this book over sixty artists were commissioned for these from artists such as Edward McKnight Kauffer, Edward Ardizzone, Ronald Searle and Eric Fraser.
