Former Childrens Laureate and friend of the Bookshop – Chris Riddell visited in July 2017 to sign these copies and drink tea with us.
After two years travelling the length and breadth of the country, visiting schools, libraries and festivals, and meeting thousands of children, Travels with My Sketchbook provides a glimpse of the incredible journey Chris has been on during his time as Children’s Laureate.
Full of sketches, doodles and pages from The Laureate Log – his daily record of his time as Laureate – it includes:
· Train doodles
· Key events and prizes in the world of children’s books
· Early sketches (including handwritten manuscripts and cover roughs) from the books he has worked on during his time as Laureate including Goth Girl and the Wuthering Fright and The Hunting of the Snark
· Political sketches or roughs for the Observer cartoon, reminding us of the major events that have punctuated his time as Laureate
· Birthday sketches, impromptu portraits, posters and Christmas cards, sketches for poems and song lyrics
With its cloth quarter binding, ribbon marker and beautiful end papers his truly is a book to treasure.
