    This book is my father's account of his working life as a commercial artist from the time he left school at fifteen - on the day WW2 broke out - up to his retirement. Editing it for publication was a sheer pleasure, since it brought Dad so vividly back to life in his own words. Sadly, he died in 2007 after many years decline as a result of Alzheimer's Disease. Family memories aside, this book stands up alongside any other memoirs, and will be found a good deal more entertaining than many a tome This book is my father's account of his working life as a commercial artist from the time he left school at fifteen - on the day WW2 broke out - up to his retirement. Editing it for publication was a sheer pleasure, since it brought Dad so vividly back to life in his own words. Sadly, he died in 2007 after many years decline as a result of Alzheimer's Disease. Family memories aside, this book stands up alongside any other memoirs, and will be found a good deal more entertaining than many a tome written by (or for) a politician or "celebrity". It gives a fascinating view of civilian life in south London during WW2, culminating in Dad's national service in the RAF. The bright razamatazz of the 1960s is reflected in the ingenuity and craziness of the exhibition industry where Don ended up working as a designer. This is a charming tale which undoubtedly deserves a wider readership than it will probably ever get. Proceeds from sales of the book go to research into Alzheimer's.
