Winnie The Pooh Ernest H Shepard Winnie The Pooh

Ernest H Shepard brought Winnie the Pooh and friends to life
…with his enchanting and captivating drawings. He was told by his parents at a very early age to always have a pencil and paper with him, so he could draw anything he saw which caught his attention. Throughout his life Ernest carried a notebook with him to jot down sketches and notes. These notebooks are now part of the Shepard archive in Surrey University and they span over 79 years.
