The Summer Exhibition is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate our talented illustrators including the newly appointed UK Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell. Original pen and ink artworks by Chris including illustrations from Neil Gaiman’s Coraline will be on show and for sale during The Summer Exhibition. We also congratulate Alexis Deacon on being short-listed for the Kate Greenaway Award for his beautifully illustrated version of Jim’s Lion, written by Russell Hoban, published by Walker Books. Original artwork from the books alongside illustrations from Croc and Bird will be on show.
We have a whole host of new work to celebrate this Summer including illustrations by Laura Carlin. Laura’s book The Promise (written by Nicola Davies, published by Walker Books) has also been shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Award, alongside Chris Riddell’s Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse and Shaun Tan’s Rules of Summer. Together with these work we will feature a selection of classic illustration including wonderful line drawings by Edward Ardizzone and E.H. Shepard.
