About the Author

Edward Lear was an English artist, illustrator, musician, author and poet, and is known now mostly for his literary nonsense in poetry and prose and especially his limericks, a form he popularised. His principal areas of work as an artist were threefold as a draughtsman employed to illustrate birds and animals making coloured drawings during his journeys, which he reworked later, sometimes as plates for his travel books.
