Forrest, Bob

John Yunge-Bateman (1897-1971). Bob Forrest. Manchester : [Bob Forrest], 2020. 10 pages, 17 pages of plates : illustrations (some in colour) ; 30 cm.
Rubaiyat Artists No. 13.

A naval officer, artist and book illustrator, he is probably best known for his rather erotic illustrations to FitzGerald’s Rubaiyat and Ovid’s Metamorphoses, both published by the Golden Cockerel Press in 1958. But he also illustrated a wide range of other books in an equally wide range of styles, from Shakespeare’s King Lear, via educational books on Natural History, to the 1950s Space–Age comic Rocket, edited by war–hero Douglas Bader.
