‘The BFG in Pictures is an exhibition from House of Illustration, curated by Quentin Blake.’

The BFG in Pictures features 40 reproductions for Roald Dahl’s much-loved story The BFG including illustrations not used when the book was first published in 1982. The exhibition charts the development of one of the most iconic characters in children’s literature and offers a glimpse of a BFG that might have been. These are exhibited alongside reproductions of the final illustrations for the book, providing a fascinating insight into the collaboration between author and illustrator.
