The Best-Selling Artist In The World…Ever!

The Best-Selling Artist In The World…Ever!: Profile of Annie Vollotton, named as such by the folks in the HarperCollins PR department. She did the very distinctive illustrations for the Good News Bible, my unwelcome companion for much of my schooldays. At the time I thought that the simple, sketchy lines of her pictures were deliberately bland, a considered leeching of excitement from a book rather too heavy on fornication and murderising. Now the BBC point it out, I can see the hippyish elements too, but her art still seems to me to go hand in hand with the Good News translation – itself boiled to the point where all flavour is lost.
