The World of Tony Meeuwissen

A Life in Illustration and Graphic Art

A stunning showcase of the bold and original work of artist Tony Meeuwissen. 

Tony Meeuwissen’s lively and engaging artwork has appeared in many decorative forms, from books and playing cards to magazine covers and postage stamps. Born in London in 1938, Tony Meeuwissen began his career at sixteen in a commercial art studio. By the age of thirty, he was a successful freelancer with commissions from Penguin Books, Radio Times, the Royal Mail, and many more. In 2013 he earned the prestigious Royal Designer for Industry designation from the Royal Society of Arts in London—a title which only two hundred designers can hold at any one time. In this absorbing memoir, the artist writes about his life at the drawing board and delves into the inspiration and ideas behind his imagery.
