Chosen by Sir Quentin Blake himself, the 40 illustrations in this exhibition are the first major collection of artwork from Roald Dahl's classic tale about Sophie and the Big Friendly Giant. The exhibition is a reflection upon the book, and the pictures are all from his archive. The collection includes Blake's first BFG illustrations - unpublished and never seen by the public before - as well as the illustrations that we all know and love. The BFG in Pictures is an exhibition from House of Illustration.
