OMG! (Not BFG) A Quentin Blake Gallery Has Just Opened In London

Brace yourself, everybody. Some serious nostalgia is about to hit. Quentin Blake, that is the children’s book illustrator Quentin Blake, has just got a permanent home in a gallery in London! The House of Illustration in King’s Cross was founded by, and opened with, an exhibition of work by Blake. And now, although the content of the gallery will continue to change, it will all be Blake’s work.

The first exhibition, entitled Seven Kinds of Magic, will include drawings from children’s favourites such as The Witches, Rosie’s Magic Horse, Magical Tales and My Friend Mr Leakey. Curated by Quentin himself, it will explore the varied depictions of magic both in his own books and in those of other writers such as Russell Hoban, John Yeoman and Roald Dahl. What a way to make a wonderful art institution even better!! Entrance is £7 for adults, which also grants access to their other excellent exhibitions!
