Alan Powers writes about twentieth century art, architecture and design, mainly in Britain. He grew up with many of Edward Ardizzone's books and in 2016 published Edward Ardizzone, artist and illustrator (Lund Humphries) and co-curated the exhibition, Ardizzone, a retrospective at the House of Illustration, London. He teaches at the London School of Architecture, New York University and the University of Kent.
"Alan Powers gives the reader delightful insights into Ardizzone’s self-contained but wayward character, which was at one with the world he drew". Country Life

The Castalian Quartet is rapidly emerging as an exciting voice on the international chamber music scene.
