ILLUMINATED: The Art Of Children's Book Illustration at Moruya Museum Nov 25th

ILLUMINATED: The Art Of Children's Book Illustration celebrates the art and importance of illustration in our significant collection of children’s books. Wednesday, 25 November 2020 from 10:00 to 12:00

Highlights of the exhibition include the woodcuts created in the 1830s by well known French illustrator J. J. Grandville for Daniel Defoe’s The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe. We are lucky to have the 1853 edition of this book in our collection.

The full page coloured illustrations in the 1899 edition of The Quiver annual are quite remarkable. They feature beautiful prints of pre-Raphaelite paintings of the late Victorian era.

Illustrations from the the much loved book Winnie-the Pooh, completed by E.H. Shepard in 1925 are real highlights. Winnie-the-Pooh is shown in his original form rather than the modern Disney version

Those who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
