ARDIZZONE, Edward (artist). Away! Away! 1955.
A large, and impressive, original pen-and-ink drawing (17.5 x 33.5cm), signed 'Diz' with pale printer's rules in pencil to the margins, floated in an ivory acid-free mount, and presented in a plain oak frame; just a touch dusted but in excellent condition.
This image, which first appeared in Punch (hence the signature 'Diz'), is reproduced as an elaborate chapter-heading in Pictures on the Pavement (Michael Joseph, 1955). It depicts the hustle and bustle of a railway station, with steam locomotives in the background.
