New Permanent Gallery for Children's Illustration

The Illustration Cupboard, Britain’s only specialist dealer in contemporary book illustration, last week opened a brand new gallery space in central London. The new space is dedicated to exhibiting and selling original artwork by more than 100 different artists, and is the first of its kind. With exhibition space on three floors, this central London gallery will display a constant and revolving programme throughout the year of single artists shows, specialist events, guest exhibitions from around the world, family afternoons and author signings.

The Illustration Cupboard provides a unique opportunity for collectors and enthusiasts to acquire original artwork by many best selling and internationally acclaimed artists, as well as the chance to purchase signed first edition books and limited edition prints. The Illustration Cupboard was established in 1995 by John Huddy, a former specialist in Old Masters who trained at Christie's, St James's, and who came to illustration through a close family connection in publishing. More and more people are appreciating the value of modern illustration both as an investment and something that can be passed from generation to generation.

The Illustration Cupboard gallery will be at 22 Bury Street, London SW1 with opening hours as follows:

Monday to Friday 10am to 6pm
Thursdays 10am to 7pm until Christmas
Saturdays 11am to 5pm until Christmas

You will find more information on the gallery's website (which is Flash enabled).
