Wampum; Legends of the Iroquois, 1972
Charles Keeping was born September 22, 1924, in Lambeth, South London,
England, and died May 16, 1988. He was an author, educator, artist, and
illustrator. He was widely regarded as the most brilliant or original British
children's illustrator of his day, but also came under criticism for the often
morbid quality of his pictures and routine rejection of conventional narrative.
He began work as an illustrator in 1956, commissioned by Oxford U. Press to
illustrate children's stories. Besides illustrating books, Keeping was a
visiting lecturer at several British art schools, created advertising art,
murals, posters, comic strips and book jackets, and worked on children's films
for television. In 1974 he was runner-up for the Hans Christian Andersen
International Children's Book Medal.
