Bawden Scrapbooks Cover smallArtist, illustrator and designer Edward Bawden’s scrapbooks, assembled over a period of more than 55 years, contain a fascinating collection of ephemera: everything from stamps, photographs, cigarette cards, Christmas cards and letters to newspaper cuttings, drawings and linocuts. This book reveals this wonderful and at times eccentric collection and provides a new insight into one of the most popular artists of 20th-century Britain.

What was the name of the mural Edward Bawden created for the Festival of Britain in 1951?
