635351348679541250Read a biography entitled Randolph Caldecott – The Man Who Could Not Stop Drawing. It’s a very interesting book about the illustrator who found his passion at a very young age, and how he came step by step to fulfill his dreams. Caldecott (1846 –1886) first embarked on the journey in submission of satirical and comical pictures for magazines and newspapers; but notably, he was most renowned for his picture books which in turns played a big influence on young Beatrix Potter. Full of historical background as well on Manchester and London, much adorned with Caldecott’s personal encounters that enlivened his illustrations!
