Quentin Blake: A Retrospective
Online 3 - 12 July 2018
A further 30 lots will be offered in the sale of Valuable Books and Manuscripts (Lots 365-394) on 11 July 2018.

In a retrospective spanning 40 years, Sir Quentin Blake has chosen from his personal collection a wealth of illustrations to be offered to benefit three charities: The House of Illustration, Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity and Survival International. The works comprise ‘Alternative Versions’, preliminary drawings, and related artwork for many of Quentin Blake’s best-loved projects which will be immediately recognisable to multiple generations of children and their parents. Alongside very many pieces from his collaboration with Roald Dahl – which defined an era in children’s book illustration – there is artwork for his own books and those of other authors, including illustrations for Folio Society editions of classics such as Candide and Don Quixote. A wonderful variety of Alternative Versions from Quentin’s work for hospitals – including St George’s, Tooting and Angers University Hospital – and for public exhibitions completes the collection.
