The selected journals of the Neo-Romantic artist Keith Vaughan. Vaughan himself selected the excerpts from forty-eight notebooks recording his life from the beginning of his artistic career, a time that also coincided with the start of the Second World War. The entries are accompanied by contemporary drawings by Vaughan and the book begins with photographs taken by the artist before the war of groups of nude males on the beach. An expanded edition of the journals was published after Vaughan's death.
