Examine The BFG in Pictures at the House of Illustration, a display of illustrations by Quentin Blake famously created for Roald Dahl’s marvellous novel, The BFG.

See 40 original artworks depicting the story that has enchanted generations of children and adults. Some of the illustrations in the exhibition have never been exhibited in public before: these were included in the first design, but were left out when the book was eventually published in 1982.

Take the unique opportunity to compare these unique sketches with the final illustrations, and gain an insight into the evolution of the iconic imagery of The BFG.
