The Bumper Book of Look and Learn The Best of the Classic Children's Magazine by Stephen Pickles

A beautifully packaged annual featuring the best of old favourites, Look and Learn fondly remembered by thousands as the Children's classic magazine from the 60s and 70s. It covered a vast range of subjects, from bumble bees to rocket science, from English literature to Greek and Roman legend. But history was its chief concern, and its brilliant illustrators filled its pages with beautiful pictures of the past. This lavishly illustrated tribute to the magazine presents a kaleidoscopic journey through time, whose narrative pauses for occasional episodes from the cult story of The Trigan Empire. Packed with superb illustrations by some of the greatest illustrators of their time, including wonderful illustrations by Frank Bellamy, Ron Embleton, Cecil Doughty, Peter Jackson, Andrew Howat and many more.

About the Author

Look and Learn was Britain's most successful ever illustrated children's educational magazine, running between 1962 and 1982 for over a thousand issues. Each week the magazine would sell several hundred thousand copies a week in the UK and around the world.
