The Worlds of Mervyn Peake at the British Library

The Worlds of Mervyn Peake at the British Library

Accomplished playwright, painter, poet and illustrator Mervyn Peake (1911-68) has an exhibition on now at the British Library. It started on the 5th of July, but there’s plenty of time to catch it as it ends on the 18th of September. The British Library recently acquired an archive of Peake’s work, and it’s on show. A big plus for Alice fans; his original drawings for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass can also be seen at the exhibition.
