Brian Cook original signed painting used for the dustwrapper of The Old Public Schools of England published by Batsford 1938. This painting is titled Eton College: School Yard & Luptons Tower, and was used as the front cover of the book. Brian Cooks timeless images of Britain are synonymous with Bratsford book covers. He designed nearly 100 dust wrappers for Batsford topography & English Heritage series. The great majority of the jackets were done between 1932 to 1940. It is probably not surprising that 36 of the original designs are regrettably missing: only a few were given away, but I might have taken greater care of them had I known that one day they could be recognised as a contribution to British design of the nineteen thirties. (The Britain of Brian Cook by Brian Cook – page 61). Frame size 49.5 x 41. Image size 23 x 33 cm. (9 x 13 in). The painting looks to be in very good condition the colours are very fresh and bright. The frame two is in good condition but is a little aged and worn. A true Batsford / Brian Cook image.
