The House of Illustration is showing the wonderful Ludwig Bemelmans Sketches for Madeline – the UK’s first exhibition dedicated to Bemelmans’s sketches for this most classic of picture books that has sold over 14 million copies since its publication in 1939. A raconteur on the page, Bemelmans’ rough drawings and dummy books offer an insight into how he built a classic.
