Laurence Whistler also wrote a book about his brother titled THE LAUGHTER AND THE URN, THE LIFE OF REX WHISTLER that was published in 1985. The cover features a detail of his murals for Plas Newydd, with the artist holding a broom.
But the book soon to be published that Whistler fans are anticipating is IN SEARCH OF REX WHISTLER: HIS LIFE AND HIS WORK by Mirabel and Hugh Cecil. The cover features a detail of the mural for Port Lympne, featured in the previous post. A selection of books about Rex Whistler and his work may be ordered here.
A third post in this series will present people and objects associated with Rex Whistler. If this is being read from the archives rather from a current post of The Devoted Classicist, be sure to read "Rex Whistler Murals" here.
