BOOK ILLUSTRATION English Today

In 1947 Paine illustrated all five books in the series English Today by Ronald Ridout for which he was paid 400 guineas.   By agreement with Ginn & Coy, copyright in the illustrations remained with Paine and his heirs though Ginn had the right to reproduce them in books and for advertising purposes worldwide.   Each book was divided into three sections for the three terms of the school year with seven chapters in each section.   Each book carried 28 illustrations  –  two  illustrations  at  the  beginning  of  each section, one at the beginning of each chapter and an additional one in the text.  In all Paine produced some 90 designs for this project.   In his Introduction the author said, ‘I should like to thank Mr. Charles Paine, the artist, for his thoughtful and imaginative reinforcement of my work throughout.’
