              Our Jacko

              Our Jacko (Hardback)

              By Morpurgo, Sir Michael; Illustrated by Gentleman, David

              • RRP: $22.99

              A deeply personal and tender story of war, peace and those who are left behind. One hundred years after the war to end all wars, Jacko's descendants discover his notebook and the untold stories tucked in its pages."This war is a nightmare that one day I shall wake from and then f...orget. And if I don't wake, then you shall never know. I don't want you ever to know." No one seems to know where the scruffy tin hat came from - just that it is very old, from some war or other long ago. To young Michael and his family it has its uses today: as a child's toy, a feeding bowl for the hens, a hanging basket... Then Michael discovers that it belonged to his great-great-grandfather, "Our Jacko", who lost his life at Ypres in 1915. As the boy digs deeper, he finds the young soldier's diary and learns more about his forgotten ancestor - husband, father, poet, actor - who died so tragically young. And it becomes clear exactly how Our Jacko should be commemorated.

              David Gentleman, an iconic British illustrator and designer, has lived a lifetime in London. Drawing from over sixty years of engagement with this most well-known capital city, Then and Now presents London as it was and as it is today. His beautiful and intricate work - of the Th...ames, Hampstead Heath, Camden Town (where David Gentleman has lived in the same house for fifty years), London's parks and sights - offers us the pleasure of looking again at the everyday. Accompanied by reflections on the work of an artist, commentary on the possibilities of ink, pen and paint and personal thoughts on the ever-changing city, this is a delight for all those who flock to London.

              From shabby post-war St Paul's to the glittering Shard skyscraper, here are over seventy years of quintessential London views in one box. In 1950, aged 19, David Gentleman arrived into a war-torn city, ready to begin his life as an artist. Over the next seven decades, he would sk...etch, paint, and engrave his way through London, documenting the cityscape, and shaping it, too - most notably through his iconic mural in Charing Cross Underground Station. Combining world-famous imagery with unexpectedly lovely scenes from daily life in the city, this box of London artworks is a veritable treasure trove for all those who flock to the capital.
