Our curator, Susan Kruse, has fallen head over heels in love with this book. She says,
"I love every book and artwork that we have in the Library of Lost Books collection. Opening each returned book was like having 48 mini Christmases. But there are one or two artworks that for some reason I fell in love with just a smidgen extra. Andrew Howell's funny, intelligent, beautifully drawn and delightfully rude book is one of my favourites."
Andrew was sent a copy of Old Master Prints. His response to the book is possibly R rated, but here are some pages we can show you.....
