Verlag: Walker Books, London, first edition, 1995
Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Dust Jacket Included
Cloth, 8vo, 185 pp. From the blurb: "Maurice Sendak called Sebastian Walker 'a kind of Prospero', for Sebastian could magic his way in and out of people's hearts and lives, and inspire those he worked with to give the very best of their ability. A pioneering publisher, he changed the world of children's books. From its beginnings in a back bedroom in Islington to an internationally acclaimed publishing house, Walker Books was the exemplification of one man's vision and determination. Sebastian Walker's life is a story of our times: of creative talent coupled with business genius, of ambition crowned with stupendous success, cut short by the scourge of AIDS. The poignant contrast between its brevity and his achievements inspired Mirabel Cecil to write about her brother's life. She talked to his contemporaries from school and Oxford, to publishers and musicians as well as artists and illustrators, to build up a compelling picture of a subtle and enthralling personality."
