The 17th Annual Winter Exhibition.
15 November – 31 January 2013
THE 17TH ANNUAL WINTER EXHIBITION embraces everything exciting, innovative and
endearing about the world of original book illustration. Our popular annual event appeals
to collectors, enthusiasts and families alike, and offers an opportunity to view our
extensive 2012 collection as well as preview things new for 2013.
Hightlights include: DAVID McKEAN author, illustrator, photographer and film maker.
David, a truly diverse and international talent, will be offering a selection of his original
book illustration artwork and we are thrilled to host him at this year's event. SIMON
BARTRAM’s much-loved character Bob, Man on the Moon, celebrates his 10th
birthday. (See below). Simon is releasing wonderfully lavish page spreads from his new
book Bob and the Moon tree Mystery.
NEIL PACKER’s breath-taking The Odyssey is wildly exciting. Rich in drama and tapestry the
original artwork for this impressive tome is surely a serious consideration for all. Miffy fans will
be delighted to see two newly released silk-screen editions from the studio of the great Dick Bruna. These
silkscreens have been enormously popular and the select short-run editions are greatly sought after. Fans of
ROGER HARGREAVES’S Mr Men books will also be tickled as we will be showing a new selection of this iconic artwork.
SIGNED AND FIRST EDITION BOOKSHOP: We also now have a greater selection of special edition and gift books.
We welcome from India the elegant TARA Books, each book is hand-made and silkscreen printed which is wholly
impressive. We have special edition copies of Michael and Clare Morpurgo’s Where My Wellies Take Me (£45),
the Hand and Eye Press edition of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (£125), the 10 year Anniversary edition of Coraline
double-signed by Chris Riddell and Neil Gaiman (£25), as well as Lisbeth Zwerger’s catalogue, The World of
Imagination. (£25). We greatly look forward to seeing old friends and new, and welcome all to this
enjoyable and festive seasonal offering.
