John Westhouse And Peter Lunn: Two Wartime Publishing Houses And Their Founder
- Hardback - Lomax Press
During World War II in London, a young German Jewish émigré David Gottlieb launched the twin publishing imprints of John Westhouse and Peter Lunn. The venture was an ambitious but short-lived one in which, between 1943 and 1948, he published some 70 John Westhouse books for adults and 120 Peter Lunn books for children. In 2010 Lomax Press published 'Peter Lunn: Children's Publisher', which gave full details of the Lunn books and their authors and illustrators. This book is a companion volume which completes the story by doing the same for the Westhouse books, and additionally contains a series of essays which provide an integrated overview of the production, design, and illustration of books from both imprints.

John Knox has suffered in this century from that trick of the popular imagination that seizes on one aspect of the popular imagination that seizes on one aspect of a historical figure and elevates it into the whole man. At one time he was the foremost Scottish genius, but in our day there have been those who would have us believe that he was a ranter, an iconoclast and perhaps a hypocrite. The author of this biography has sought to find the truth between these two extremes.
