Quentin Blake and John Yeoman
Quentin Blake and John Yeoman: 50 Years of Children’s Books
Quentin Blake has had a number of extended collaborations with writers, but the longest of all has been with John Yeoman. This exhibition is the first to celebrate this partnership, featuring more than 40 works, including illustrations and books by the two.
Their first book was A Drink of Water in 1960, which launched Quentin Blake’s career in children’s book illustration. Since then they have worked together on nearly 50 projects including All the Year Round, launched by Andersen Press in October 2017, and A Drink of Water, which was republished by Thames and Hudson in September 2017.
Quentin Blake and John Yeoman: 50 Years of Children’s Books is a touring exhibition from House of Illustration, curated by Quentin Blake.
