Before Pooh. . .

Once again I am letting it be known my fascination with the world of old illustrators.

EH Shephard is of course best known now as the illustrator of the Pooh books as well as Wind in the Willows.

But like many great artists they many times had an artistic life before and after what they are known for now.

Not willing to sit out the First World War as his country went off to fight he enlisted and soon found himself in the thick of things. He found many ways to record his time in service.

Some of his works are very compelling.

Much more of his work can be seen here.
