The Detective's Handbook

Published by Usborne books in 1979, The Detectives Handbook (also published as 3 separate books) was quite simply my favourite childhood book.

Usborne are always known for the wealth of their illustrations, and these were no different. Pages of Colin King’s artwork that made me want to go out and re-enact the scenes, and above all, I really wanted that detectives office!

I found a copy on ebay last week, so I’ve taken some examples from it, and set up a Detective’s Handbook Flickr Set
