Hi, I do not know if you have got anything of value, all I know is my sisters adores the drawings of the Johnstones, I do not know much about them myself, apart from the fact that my sister seems to think that when we were younger, we had a book, Hans Andersons Grimms Fairy Tales which was illustrated by the Johnstones, but alas the book has gone walkabout. Have you got a price for selling them from anyone? and can so describe them to me, that is if you do not mind thanks.

I saw some comments you made about the Graham-Johnstone twins in 2002. I may be too late in this answer.

The Twins were my second cousins and are both now dead. They were the daughters of Doris Zinkeisen a very accomplished London artist. Doris elder sister, Anna, was a fine portrait painter and painted 2 pictures of the Duke of Edinburgh.

The twin's grandmother was Clara B Charles who was the eldest sister of my grandfather.

The Graham-Johnstone style is very distictive and one often see Christmas cards which one knows immedieately are drawn by one of them.

Regards,

David Charles

Why doesn't Purnell (or some other publisher) reprint the twins' editions of the Roger Lancelyn Green titles: 'Sir Lancelot of the Lake', 'Jason and the Golden Fleece', etc. which originally appeared in the children's paper 'Finding Out' in the 1960s?
These are stunningly beautiful books, and the first (and only?) editions now sell for small fortunes.
