Look & Learn

Thanks to Paul Green for reminding me about the 'Look & Learn' magazine.
I had forgotten how amazing the artwork was!

'Look & Learn' was an educational magazine for children produced in the sixties.
We collected every issue as kids, and kept them in the special binders provided.

'The Bible Story' was produced by the same publisher although I don't recall it. (If anyone has any back issues, I'd be very interested).
You can see from the sample above, (from, that the Bible illustrations were superb. The above picture was by an artist called Hayes, (image © 'Look & Learn' Magazine Ltd). Does anyone have any info about this artist? Clive Uptton was also one of the Look & Learn artists.

The artwork in Look & Learn was provided by the cream of British illustrators, and can be viewed at . I also include a link to the Look & Learn blog in my newly started 'Blogroll' below. Enjoy!

There is a short bio on Jack Hayes on the Look & Learn site Graham. Here it is :
Jack Hayes (na). Artist who contributed a number of superb illustrations to The Bible Story. Almost nothing is known about Hayes’ career. His known works include the illustrations for The New Oxford Illustrated Bible (Oxford University Press, n.d.), Flags of the World by I. O. Evans (Hamlyn, 1970). In the early 1970s he illustrated paperback covers for Corgi and Fontana on titles as wide-ranging as The Long Wait and Kiss Me, Deadly by Mickey Spillane (both 1970), Too Few For Drums by R. F. Delderfield and Only the Valiant. Great Legends of the West by Charles Marquis Warren (both 1972) and The Gallows Herd by Maureen Peters and Steamboat Gothic by Frances Parkinson Keyes (both 1973).
