After the resounding success of 2018’s Quentin Blake: A Retrospective, the Christie’s Books & Manuscripts department is delighted to offer another collection of works from the artist’s studio, sold to benefit two charities close to Sir Quentin Blake’s heart: Greenpeace and Survival International. Quentin Blake: Not in Books comprises 204 drawings of playful creatures, fantastical scenarios and unusual individuals, who spring directly from Quentin Blake’s lively imagination, full of humour and empathy. Not in Books showcases the wide variety of work undertaken over the past decade alongside book illustration – we are introduced to characters who may not be familiar to us, yet are unmistakeably ‘Quentin Blake’ in their joyful execution and characteristic style. Bidding starts at £100.
