John Griffiths...

..that illustrator responsible for some lovely images for the Autumn 1969 edition of Time and Tune, (see March), has, sadly, died recently.  In addition to the Time and Tune illustrations, Griffiths created some fantastic covers for Penguin beginning in the 1950's.  Some truly stunning shopfront illustrations as well as a few examples of his other work can be seen if you click on the links in his obituary published in today's Guardian.  In addition, several of those covers can be seen here.  I'm a Penguin collector and I dearly wish I had some of those in my modest library.  In lieu of Penguins, I can share the illustrations from that T&T booklet.  I hope you enjoy them.
