The amazing Mr Mackintosh


We've recently purchased some copies of a cracking little book, the first to be written about Charles Rennie Mackintosh which is aimed specifically at children. 'The amazing Mr Mackintosh' is partly in the form of a graphic novel, but includes photographs and key 'Mack facts'. If you think it sounds ghastly, you'd be quite wrong: it's entertaining, informative and accurate, and has been published by the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society (ISBN 9780955778117, £5.99). It's likely to appeal to anyone with an interest in graphic novels, and would also be a valuable introduction to Mackintosh for those less confident with the English language.
