Not long ago I was back in the second hand bookshop, a favourite place of mine in Carlisle. And whilst checking once again if they had a pretty copy of the Hobbit by JRR Tolkien I discovered a book. A beautiful book of the work by a man named Ffolkes. I've mentioned him briefly before on this blog because he illustrated my beautiful Folio Society copy of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes by Anita Loos. But this new book is called 'Ffanfare' and it's a lovely amalgamation of his works. Here are a few examples of my favourites.
