Norman Gnome at the Bookshop (Original)

Norman Gnome at the Bookshop (Original) by Geoff Squire at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: SquireNGBookshop (Click for LARGE picture)

Artist: Geoff Squire (biography)
Medium: Watercolour on Cartridge Paper
Size: 6" x 6" (140mm x 150mm)
Date: 1958

This is the unique original Watercolour painting by Geoff Squire.

A wonderful panel from the story 'Norman Gnome Gets Rich' as published in Playhour 1958. One of only four known stories painted by Geoff Squire.

This is a very good example of Squire's work. These stories were fully painted, funny and filled with little details that make them worth going back to time and again. Watercolour with pen and ink.

This painting is delightfully full of charm and is wonderfully executed, delighting children and adults alike! Norman Gnome has plenty of gold coins and decides to go to the bookshop- every kid's dream as he leaves reading his favourite annual (the self referential Playhour of course!), followed by 3 heavily laden footmen.

Gorgeous depth and details abound in this as the local Gnomes look on in awe.
