Publication accompanying the inaugural exhibition Seven Kinds of Magic, in House of Illustration’s permanent Quentin Blake Gallery.

This exhibition, curated by Blake himself, explored his varied depictions of magic both in his own books and in those of other writers such as Russell Hoban, John Yeoman and Roald Dahl. It showed original illustrations from seven very different books - Angel Pavement, The Witches, Patrick, Angelica Sprocket’s Pockets, Rosie’s Magic Horse, Magical Tales and My Friend Mr Leakey.
