i loved this book when i was younger, even though it was second hand form my mum and she had torn half the pages out You know a book is a classic when you never see the whole story and it doesn t matter because it s so beautiful As an older girl now i ve just relised there s some interesting natural history stuff crammed into the back after the poetry, which is nice, if a bit random i can t tell you anything about the storyline i ve never seen the compleate copy, but i can tell you that i loved this book when i was younger, even though it was second hand form my mum and she had torn half the pages out You know a book is a classic when you never see the whole story and it doesn t matter because it s so beautiful As an older girl now i ve just relised there s some interesting natural history stuff crammed into the back after the poetry, which is nice, if a bit random i can t tell you anything about the storyline i ve never seen the compleate copy, but i can tell you that every picture is a masterpiece down to the last detail Renowned Illustrator Alan Aldridge Introduced The Fantastical World Of The Butterfly Ball In This Breathtaking Modern Classic It Is Now Available In A Lavish New Edition, Complete With Nature Notes By Richard Fitter On Each Creature And An Introduction To The Life And Work Of Alan Aldridge The illustrations by Alan Aldridge are really beautiful, vibrant and detailed but I wasn t so keen on William Plomer s verse It was quite jerky for my taste This was published in 1973 and hasnt dated at all.
My favorite book growing up The artwork was amazing, very rich The words were a little above my head at the time but it was just challenging enough to make me want to understand the bigger words Sharing with my daughter now.
Remake of a classic story.

Alan Aldridge was a British artist, graphic designer and illustrator.His career began in 1965 when he happened to meet the art director of Penguin Books, and began producing illustrations for book covers Over the next two years he took over as art director, and introduced his style which resonated with the mood of the time In 1968 he moved to his own graphic design firm, INK, which became closely involved with graphic images for the Beatles and Apple Corps 1 During the 1960s and 1970s he was responsible for a great many album covers, and helped create the graphic style of that era He designed a series of science fiction book covers for Penguin Books He made a big impression with his illustrations for the Beatles Illustrated Song lyrics He also provided illustrations for The Penguin Book of Comics , a history of British and American comic art His work was characterised by a flowing, cartoony style and soft airbrushing very much in step with the psychedelic styles of the times In the theatre, in February 1969 he designed the graphics for controversial Jane Arden director play Vagina Rex and the Gas Oven at the London Arts Laboratory, Drury Lane.He is possibly best known, however, for the picture book The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper Feast 1973 , a series of illustrations of anthropomorphic insects and other creatures, which he created in collaboration with William Plomer, who wrote the accompanying verses This was based on William Roscoe s poem of the same name, but was inspired when Aldridge read that John Tenniel had told Lewis Carroll it was impossible to draw a wasp in a wig.Aldridge also created the artwork for Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy by Elton John in 1975.
