Mervyn Peake was one of the most multi-talented artists of the twentieth century. Best known for his Gormenghast trilogy of novels, one of the most sustained flights of imaginative writing ever attempted, Peake was also an author of children's books and nonsense verse, a painter, war artist and poet. He illustrated such classic works as Treasure Island, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Ancient Mariner, Grimm's Household Tales and Bleak House. A man of extraordinary vision and imagination, his illustrations, paintings and writings are unforgettable. His influence is felt to this day in the fields of literature and art, and he has been an inspiration to many.
