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

Original artwork starts at just £195.
