Peake Performance
(2020, 192 pages, $22.95, 6 x 8.75)

Many will know the great British author-illustrator Mervyn Peake for his Gormenghast trilogy, beginning with Titus Groan. Less familiar, perhaps, is his chief career as an illustrator of books and magazines, including the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, a picaresque satire by philosopher C.E.M. Joad, a children's tale about Lyonne the lion, an eloquent and despairing poem by Peake himself about bombs dropping on London, Treasure Island, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, and three Lewis Carroll books - The Hunting of the Snark, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. The best drawings are here, along with a foreword by Peake biographer G. Peter Winnington.
