Open Culture digs up T.S. Eliot’s illustrated cover for Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats – later famously illustrated by the great Edward Gorey – and the author’s handwritten, hand-drawn manuscripts.

Pair with J.R.R. Tolkien’s illustrations for the original edition of The Hobbit and E.B. White’s rare illustrated manuscripts for Charlotte’s Web.

And are you reading the always-stimulating Open Culture? Okay, good.

J - Howard Jacobson
J is set in the future, a world where the past is a dangerous country, not to be talked about or visited. J is a love story of incomparable strangeness, both tender and terrifying. David Hughes was commissioned to paint a large J with two stripes of red to run across the spine of the letter. The J needed to fill the page. It needed to convey an underlying tension – to be dynamic with the energy seeping into the background. Of course it wasn’t as straight forward as envisaged. Here are David’s comments on painting the J. “After 8 attempts with ink and the like I slipped into my artist’s smock and beret, went over to the easel and with a sweep or two of the brush painted the letter J in black oil paint on lining paper (wallpaper). Voi-la`!  Much better to paint your masterpiece standing up…”
