Vaughan began his first journal in August 1939, with a group of four journals about his time at Eden Prisoner of War Camp in North Yorkshire following in 1944 and 1945, and a final journal from 1975 to 1977. The journals give an extraordinary insight into his personal thoughts, his artistic development, as well as his increasingly volatile mental state. A number of works in this collection were used as illustrations in the published journals.
