ITEMS FROM HENRY WORSLEY'S POLAR COLLECTION
Shackleton's Epic Voyage illustrated by Raymond Briggs
Published in 1969 and perhaps one of the least known additions to polar literature this real gem of a book features the unmistakable drawing style of Raymond Briggs. Despite it being aimed at younger readers this tells the story of the Endurance and the boat journey in a style that will appeal to adults as well.
Every page has a drawing that appears to be so simply composed yet it is full of detail and before turning each page one seems to spend much longer journeying through the picture long after having read the informative and succinct text of Michael Brown.
