There’s a useful listing here of RS titles linked to illustrator. (Though I do see “Flame-Colored Taffeta” is missing its illustrator here- it was Rachel Birkett).
Has some good things to say about your website, too, Anthony :)
Sorry, but “Chess-dream in a Garden” was in fact illustrated by Ralph Thompson, whose wonderfully sensitive animal drawings graced the pages of many of Gerald Durrell’s earlier books.
