Eric Fraser

Eric Fraser
Eric Fraser was a 20th century British illustrator best known for his illustrations in Radio Times that spanned a run of over 40 years. Fraser also worked in many other venues, from book illustration to commercial art for advertising,

His work is the subject of a retrospective at the Chris Beetles Gallery in London, that runs from 17 April to 11 May, 2013.

The gallery has an extensive selection of his work online. Most of the images are linked to larger versions. You can also view a slideshow of selected works on the Guardian, and there is a Flickr group pool devoted to his work.

Faser’s explorations of style range from whimsical to boldly graphic, at times bringing to mind the wood engravings of Lynd Ward.

There is a collection of his work from 1998, Eric Fraser: Designer and Illustrator, likely out of print but available from booksellers through Amazon UK.
