Forrest, Bob

Fred Adlington (1886-1931) Bob Forrest. Manchester : [Bob Forrest], 2019. 15 pages, 17 pages of plates : illustrations (some in colour) ; 30 cm.
Rubaiyat Artists No. 8.

Fred Adlington, a musician by profession, was a book illustrator active in the 1920s. Almost forgotten today, his illustrations for The Rubaiyat deserve to be better known, as indeed does his other art–work. Little information is available about him, and this essay is a first attempt to outline his life and career, as a musician as well as an artist.
