John Vernon Lord

The Nonsense Verse of Edward Lear
  • The Nonsense Verse of Edward Lear

  • Welcome to the world of Edward Lear!

    Wonderfully reissued in 2012 to celebrate the bicentenary of Edward Lear, this exquisitely-illustrated hardback is a classic in the making. John Vernon's Lord's stunning illustrations completely capture the spirit and satirical wit of Lear's work, conveying a lifelong enthusiasm for Lear's nonsense.

    'Nonsense is the breath of my nostrils', wrote Edward Lear (1812-88)

    The perfect gift for both Lear fans and those discovering his work for the first time.
