In news better late than never, in early February I was very fortunate to be invited to the opening of an exhibition of the artwork by Bruce Ingman for Hooray for Bread. The exhibition was held at the Illustration Cupboard, a small but very wonderful gallery dedicated to children’s book art, just behind Fortnum and Mason’s in London.
Here are some lovely photos from the evening (all taken by photographer Suyi Chen)…
If you’re ever in London you must definitely make time to visit the Illustration Cupboard. The Bruce Ingman show has now made way for a special exhibition of Jane Hissey artwork for her new book Ruby, Blue & Blanket, though they still have artwork by Bruce on sale. You can buy lots of signed books (at RRP) and First Editions too – these make wonderful presents!
I have to thank Bee for my brilliant piece of headgear. She rose to the challenge and created a marvellous headpiece for me. I really hope I shall have the opportunity to wear it again!
Thanks too to everyone at Walker Books for such a great evening. It was wonderful to meet so many of the faces behind the names.
