There is a new exhibition at the V & A devoted to Winnie the Pooh and E H Shepard’s illustrations, so this week the Post is devoted to the latter. We reproduce (and give as a postcard with every copy of the book) the beautiful E H Shepard watercolour which he painted for the original jacket of Greenery Street by Denis Mackail. It’s about a young couple’s first year of married life in a small house in Chelsea and is one of our most beloved books: the perfect present for a young couple, a Londoner, or anyone interested in 1920s social history. Or a really good read. PG Wodehouse called it ‘so good that it makes one feel that it’s the only possible way of writing a book, to take an ordinary couple and just tell the reader all about them.’
