Drawn from Memory

In this autobiography, E.H. Shepard describes his Victoria childhood in St. John's Wood in the 1880's. Shephard illustrated Winnie the Pooh, Now We are Six and others by A.A. Milne ... also Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame

Manguel says, "The Wind in the Willows" is all about home".

Stumbled across your 'blog' while idly clicking the 'next blog' function on the top of the page. What a wonderful idea to do your own book record, and it does look beautiful. I loved Drawn From Memory - read it in 2004, I think - but haven't read the sequel(s?) yet.

Keep up the good work!
