Corebooks

Marcia Williams has continued to use the comic strip style for which she became well known but she has developed and extended it to create this scrapbook of a boy's life during World War I. The book strongly conveys everyday life at that time, using newspaper cuttings, photographs, cigarette cards and, most particularly, letters and cards that fold out from the page. It will inspire children's own bookmaking as well as being an imaginative information resource.
