  • Finn's Country: Painting Watership Down (2016)

    🎬Roger Finn presents a short documentary about Aldo Galli who illustrated Watership Down.

    Aldo graduated from Agricultural Sciences at the University of Milan in 1992 and moved to England in 2001.

    "Creating the Watership Down collection was, without doubt, a unique experience and a great satisfaction. Quite possibly, it was the final development of an idea that I had unconsciously carried in the back of my mind since my childhood, when a Christmas I received as a present a novel that told the story of a band of rabbits…." Aldo Galli.
