Beyond Pooh: EH Sheppard

Things like this make the Internet worthwhile: the Chris Beetles Gallery has an exhibition of over 200 of EH Sheppard's illustrations, many of which are available to peruse online. Inextricably linked to AA Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh, he is also best know for his drawings for Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows and Punch magazine. However, he was rather a prolific worker- also producing illustrations for various other publications- magazines, adults books and even two of his own memoirs recollecting his childhood.
