On Tirzah's birthday last week we visited Identity Art Gallery to see “The Magical Kingdom of Illustrations”, an exhibition of original artwork that celebrates the fantastic skills of twenty contemporary children's book illustrators. My photos do not do the artists justice, of course, but I wanted Amanda and others to see the range of work on exhibition. Here is a small sample:
Miffy on a Bicycle by Dick Bruna
Alfie Gives a Hand by Shirley Hughes
Charlie and Lola by Lauren Child
Hello, Elmer, Where are you Going? By David McKee
Father Christmas by Raymond Briggs
The Large Children by Jill Murphy
The Moor is the Most Beautiful Place by Inga Moor
Tweedledee and Tweedledum by John Vernon Lord
Off to Bed by Maurice Sendak
Let the Rumpus Begin by Maurice Sendak
The Wild Things by Maurice Sendak
I guarantee that adults and children alike will enjoy this free exhibition, so take your whole family to see it this week before it's over!
