A phenomenal night-out showcasing some of the finest illustrators working today – graphic novelists and comic artists, cartoonists, children’s book illustrators, calligraphers and contemporary illuminators.
Among many others, this pop-up exhibition will include work by Jon Burgerman, James Jarvis, Alice Melvin, Martin Rowson and Mr. Scruff, who will also be the DJ for the night.
Plus a special screening of Oscar nominated animated film The Secret of Kells; the world’s largest comic; masterclasses; and more.
Illuminate! offers an after-hours chance to soak up the sumptuous art of the medieval world on display in the PACCAR gallery, at the same time as its breathtaking modern-day counterparts.
Presented in association with House of Illustration
This event is part of the British Library’s Spring Festival, a five day celebration of creativity, fashion and design.
