Rose Blake

Egg and Spoon

In Egg and Spoon, the artist and illustrator Rose Blake tells the story of a childhood fuelled on art and creativity, infused with travel and steeled by the more quotidian aspects of family life growing up with the artist Peter Blake. Surrounded by a cast of originals and eccentrics and taking in backdrops such as London, L.A. and Paris, Blake creates poetic snapshots of a family, with the joys of a life dedicated to art and the inevitable fragilities and poignancy of age and, pertinently, ill health. The effect is that of a literary photo album, with all the charm and character and emotional intensity those documents communicate.
