Sir Quentin Blake is one of the most popular and best loved illustrators in the world.
He has illustrated over three hundred books, and is known for his own picture books for children and his work with writers such as Michael Rosen, John Yeoman and Russell Hoban, and not least, for his long collaboration with Roald Dahl. In recent years he has also created works for public spaces, notably for a dozen hospitals.
“We all want to help open children’s minds to the possibilities of life, both practical and imaginative. As someone who has tried to do this in books and pictures it’s rewarding to be able to support the enterprising people who have taken on the task of doing it in person.” Sir Quentin Blake
