In Conversation: John Vernon Lord and Chris Riddell at House of Illustration

"Following the opening of John Vernon Lord: Illustrating Carroll and Joyce, the award-winning author-illustrator is joined by Chris Riddell to reflect on the exhibition which features his extraordinary work for five books including Finnegan’s Wake, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Ulysses."

 “As you will see in this exhibition, the pages of John’s notebooks are filled with complex, intricate visual incantations; calligraphy, foliage and geometric shapes entwine in astonishing profusion, demonstrating John’s wizardry with the medium of black ink on paper.” – Chris Riddell



"John Vernon Lord has been working as an author-illustrator for nearly 50 years. He has illustrated many classic texts by Aesop, Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear, as well as his own stories, and he was also a distinguished lecturer and teacher of illustration for 45 years until his retirement."
