Inspiring Older Readers
An Interview With Hunt Emerson
The Letterpress Project has asked authors and illustrators to think about what has inspired them as artists, what their favourite books are and how they relate to their audience - we've also asked them if they themselves are book collectors.
We are delighted to present an exclusive interview with the writer, cartoonist and illustrator, Hunt Emerson. He is one of Britain's favourite comics artists, whose distinctive drawing style and approach to visual humour are widely recognised and enjoyed. He has been writing and drawing his iconoclastic comics since the 1970s, and has worked extensively as an illustrator and designer since then, too. He has worked for many major book and magazine publishers, and has published around 30 comic books and albums, mostly with Knockabout Comics of London - the latest being his hilarious reworking of Dante's Inferno.
