Kort biografi
Victor Ambrus (born László Győző Ambrus, 19 August 1935) was a British illustrator of history, folk tale, and animal story books. He also became known from his appearances on the Channel 4 television archaeology series Time Team, on which he visualised how sites under excavation may have once looked. Ambrus was an Associate of the Royal College of Art and a Fellow of both the Royal Society of Arts and the Royal Society of Painters, Etchers and Engravers. He was also a patron of the Association of Archaeological Illustrators and Surveyors up until its merger with the Institute for Archaeologists in 2011.

Recensioner

Ambrus is one of my favorite illustrators. I really admire his linear style especially the tiny hatching done to show the direction of hair or form. This book of his is just one to drool over (or practice by copying the drawings), it's not a step-by-step instruction book. Instead it's a showcase of Ambrus' drawings of animals. Most of them done on location at zoos or wildlife parks, some are of pets, horses from a friend's stable or cattle in the fields. Little notes on the pages describe a bit about his working conditions, his preferred drawing media (graphite and charcoal- he's not afraid to smudge!), and something about the techniques he uses to capture likeness of living animals that are moving around. Basically his advice is: start with large basic shapes, work in the details later. There are also brief paragraphs telling some facts about the wild animals, which I read with interest. He enjoys sketching at the zoo... It's a book I return to again and again to admire someone else's skill and hope to emulate.

Cool old book for to have in a personal library. I can't imagine this in a school library, but I would read it to my children in the future. Cool story with beautifully bright illustrations!

Janosh, the only man in his village to have traveled from it, recounts to everyone in a tavern how he bested Napoleon's soldiers and became friends with Napoleon. Everyone believes him, except for one young man who sneezes; the author explains that in Hungary, sneezing means you don't believe. After Janosh tells his tale, he leaves the tavern.
