An exhibition of Quentin Blake's original illustrations for The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots, the recently re-discovered Beatrix Potter manuscript, published in September.
The book about 'a well-behaved prime black Kitty cat, who leads rather a double life', features classic Potter characters including Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and Mr Tod re-drawn by Blake.
The exhibition features Blake’s 50 illustrations for the book, a sketchbook and reference material. It also contains the original Beatrix Potter manuscript and one of Potter’s only two illustrations for the book, on loan from the V&A.
This is the second exhibition to be held in the new Quentin Blake Gallery at House of Illustration, which opened in April. The Quentin Blake Gallery offers a continuous series of exhibitions of different aspects of Blake’s work, drawing on the unparalleled diversity of his personal archive of thousands of original illustrations, roughs and preparatory drawings.
Opening Times are:
Tuesday to Sunday 10.00am - 6.00pm (Last admission 5.30pm)
Bank holiday opening times may vary (please check website for confirmation when booking tickets)
