1921 to 2014
Sadly Val died on the 4th of July aged 92. It had been a pleasure to meet him.

The 'Gumdrop' series and 'George The Fire Engine' published in Piccolo
The Piccolo covers were taken from illustrations used inside the Hodder
and Stoughton editions.
The Piccolo cover was by Chris Molan but the illustrations inside were
by Val Biro
|Val is currently working on a 200 page edition of 'The Arabian Nights' for AWARD Publishers|
After I made this page I was really pleased to get this email from
Wow! What a fine display of my work!
So many of my Pan covers, and also my Pan Gumdrops!
It is all put together beautifully, including the photos you took in my studio.
Thank you for your interest, and your skill!
Very best wishes,
