John Vernon Lord at Illustrationcupboard

This summer we are delighted to present a special online exhibition of artwork by highly acclaimed illustrator John Vernon Lord, in celebration of his recent accolade of being named 'Illustrator of the Year' at the V&A Illustration Awards 2018.

Illustrationcupboard has proudly been exhibiting John’s work for ten years, including his outstanding illustrations produced for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass (Artist's Choice Editions) as well as other great literary classics. This online showcase highlights the strikingly imaginative, fantastical and avant-garde world of this truly unique artist, whose 50 year practice spans book illustrator, children’s author, and scholar. A selection of John's etchings, drawings and mixed media artwork are available for purchase alongside signed copied of his books.

Please note, this is an online exhibition only, however for a chance to see more of John’s artwork we recommend visiting our friends at the House of Illustration, who are currently showing an excellent exhibition of ‘John Vernon Lord: Illustrating Carroll and Joyce’ running until November. Details available at www.houseofillustration.org.uk

Original artwork starts at just £195.

CONCEPT TO CREATION: SHAUN TAN
06 June - 06 July 2018
Shaun Tan is one of the great names around the world, not only for his books but film, animation and paintings. We are therefore delighted to present a very special collection of original artwork.

For the first time Shaun has released a selection of the final artwork that he produced for the world-famous book TALES FROM OUTER SUBURBIA.

This collection constitutes the published original drawings that Shaun produced for the book, and as such offers fans and collectors a very special opportunity to acquire this illustrated PUBLISHED ARTWORK from one of his books.

An opportunity NOT TO BE MISSED!

We are also showing a concept drawing of ‘ERIC’ as well as the beautiful surreal and fantastic oil paintings and pastel drawings that Shaun has produced a concept work and for his own pleasure. Some of these superb pastel works are of an impressive size and are truly amazing to see hung on the wall.

Alongside this work there will be a selection of Shaun's Giclee editioned prints, which he has produced himself in his studio, and are work produced for his best-selling book 'The Arrival' as well as 'Tales from Outer Suburbia'.

There will also be a selection of signed books available for purchase as well, including the impressive special edition of 'The Singing Bones' (£75).

The Emperor's New Clothes - A Classic by Angela Barrett
25 April - 25 May 2018
The Emperor's New Clothes' - Hans Christian Andersen, retold by Naomi Lewis, illustrated by Angela Barrett.
"25 April - 25 May 2018.

'' The translation is fine and sure, and Barrett's artwork is splendid, full of lively vignettes and early-20th-century details, complete with a company of wise dogs and the impeccably expressive faces of bystanders.' (Kirkus Review)


The Emperor's New Clothes is one of those books illustrated by the wonderful Angela Barrett that we never believed she would release. The classic Hans Anderson Tale is one of the most famous of all and its relevance seems to fit every age without fail. It has long been one of Angela's personal favourite books, and one she has been loathe to break-up however we are delighted, indeed honoured, to assist her in offering this to collectors and enthusiasts to acquire.
