The Opening of Illustration House - a great step forward for Illustration!

After many years of planning, the first public gallery in Britain dedicated to Illustration Artwork in all it's forms opened on July 2.

While in London earlier this year, we were privileged to be shown through the new home for Illustration House - still in renovation mode. Even then, we could see the potential for exciting programs with flexible exhibition and workshop spaces. The location of the 'house-like' building is in the fabulous central location of Granary Square near King's Cross Station.

 Their inaugural exhibition Inside Stories showcases the work of one of the UK's most important and best-loved illustrators - Quentin Blake, who says -
The House of Illustration is about to do something remarkable. Illustration has been one of the most distinctive strands in the history of British art and I'm delighted there will now be a dedicated space where everyone can view, discuss or learn about illustration; British and international; past, present and future.

We'd only wish we were able to get back to see this important exhibition!
