The Cutaways of Bruce Cornwell - The Ship’s Crew
by Jeremy Briggs
While the art that Bruce Cornwell produced for Eagle remains his best known work, it was just a small part of what he produced over the years. In 1953 he wrote and illustrated The Ship’s Crew, one of the Educational Supply Association’s series of books entitled People’s Jobs. While it is little known now this book proved surprisingly popular at the time and in 1955 a second edition was published that was reprinted at least three more times into the 1960s.
The book featured several cutaways including one of the Neptune itself for the book’s frontispiece, while the main body of the book include clear link cutaways of both the Captain’s cabin and the ship’s Radio Officer’s cabin and office.
