Robin Jacques in Lilliput and Radio Times

We know quite a bit about Robin Jacques (brother of Hattie apparently!) so I shan’t say much just share some lovely illustrations I found while browsing some magazines. The first gallery comes from Lilliput between 1953-1955 just because I own them. If I find more I shall add them here.

The second batch come from the Radio Times – again there’s no logic to why they appear – except I like his work – and these are not ALL the images from the Radio Times!

The Watchmakers of Switzerland

I’ve scanned a lot of artwork I like in the Lilliput magazine and here are a series that appeared over a few years between 1951-1953. There were others but I love this woodcut-like appearance. The last one has a signature that looks like “Rose”. They come from:

Lilliput-1951-Jun-Jul-p016
Lilliput-1951-Mar-Apr-p010
Lilliput-1951-May-Jun-p012
Lilliput-1952-12-Jan-p018
Lilliput-1953-11-Dec-p082

How are these drawn and reproduced? – I’m happy to be educated!
