To celebrate Philip Pullman's new book, The Book of Dust, we will be having a showcase exhibition of the original illustration artwork from Philip Pullman's books plus a book signing event in our London gallery.
John Lawrence has created the front covers for all three main books in the His Dark Materials trilogy, including Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass. John also fully illustrated two of Pullman's intermediate books in the series, Lyra's Oxford and Once Upon A Time in the North. Adding to that we are honoured to display with a world first Chris Wormell's front cover artwork for the new and highly anticipated first volume of The Book of Dust, publishing this month.
This exciting exhibition offers a unique opportunity to view and purchase illustrations from these truly world-class books. All artwork is for sale along with signed copies of the books.
John Lawrence and Chris Wormell will be at the gallery to meet visitors and sign copies of Philip Pullman's books on Thursday 19th October, from 4.30pm - 7.00pm. Families are welcome. There will also be a limited number of very special copies signed by both Philip Pullman and Chris Wormell available for purchase.
If you're unavailable to attend the event but you would like a signed book, please call the gallery ahead of the event on 0207 976 1727 or email us and we can reserve a copy for you.
The exhibition runs until 21 October. For details, visit the exhibition page here http://wwww.illustrationcupboard.com/exhibition_details.aspx?eId=291&ePage=1
