Quentin Blake is a collaboration between Tate and London ‘s new House of Illustration, published to coincide with the gallery’s inagural exhibition, Inside Stories, a landmark show by Quentin Blake.

Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and most highly regarded illustrators of our time. Internationally celebrated for his partnership with Roald Dahl, throughout his fifty year career he also extended collaboration with other authors such as Russel Hoban, John Yeoman, and Michael Rosen. He created children’s books of his own and illustrated adult classics by Cervantes, Cyrano de Bergerac, Voltaire, and La Fontaine. In recent years his work has appeared extensively on the walls of museums, hosptials, and other public spaces. Joanna Carey’s essay is a brilliant survey of Blake’s oeuvre, at once intimate, perceptive and illuinating, and written with an exuberance matching that of her subject.
