Children's Illustrated ClassicsChildren and adults alike will delight in discovering how illustrators over the years have interpreted classic childhood tales in Children's Illustrated Classics, a free exhibition at the British Library. Everyone's favourite marmalade loving bear, Paddington, is featured alongside the boy who wouldn't grow up, Peter Pan, and star of current West End musical, Willy Wonka. Classic works including the Just So Stories by British author Rudyard Kipling, Kenneth Grahame's Wind in the Willows and The Hobbit, which JRR Tolkien penned while teaching at Oxford University, are among the childhood stories which have repeatedly inspired generations of illustrators.

 

About British Library

With over 150 million items, a copy of every publication produced in the UK and Ireland, artwork by artists such as Antony Gormley and Eduardo Paolozzi, and a host of historically momentous works - including the Magna Carta, the Gutenberg Bible, Shakespeare's First Folio and the Lindisfarne Gospels - a guided tour around the British Library is the best way to take it all in.
