John Westhouse And Peter Lunn

During World War II in London, a young German Jewish e?migre? David Gottlieb launched the twin publishing imprints of John Westhouse and Peter Lunn. The venture was an ambitious but short-lived one in which, between 1943 and 1948, he published some 70 John Westhouse books for adults and 120 Peter Lunn books for children. In 2010 Lomax Press published ‘Peter Lunn: Children’s Publisher’, which gave full details of the Lunn books and their authors and illustrators. This book is a companion volume which completes the story by doing the same for the Westhouse books, and additionally contains a series of essays which provide an integrated overview of the production, design, and illustration of books from both imprints.
