A wonderful opportunity to see the artwork from some of Raymond Briggs’s books and novels.

Raymond Briggs (1934-2022) is best-known for silent picturebook The Snowman (1978). But over a 60-year career, Briggs created illustrated books on themes from family relationships and grief to social mobility and political satire.

With never-before-seen artwork, this exhibition delves into the work of the author-illustrator behind some of the UK’s most influential children’s books and graphic novels. 

“[To be an illustrator] you have to be a mini actor. If the figure is to walk jauntily with its nose in the air, you have to imagine what that feels like. You have to be the person and observe the person, and do both these things at once.” Raymond Briggs
