The Peake blog is back
First, some films:
Michael Foreman, Sebastian Peake and Zoe Wilcox from the BBC programme about the British Library.
Sebastian Peake speaking at the National Archives, Kew. More information on the exhibition of the Hitler drawings here.
In The Spectator, by John Spurling. And another by John Spurling.
Centenary comments in Design Week. Followed by an announcement also in Design Week about the forthcoming set of Peake books to be published by the Queen Anne Press.
In the mean time the exhibition of illustration originally curated by Patrick Gyger for Maison d'Ailleurs has now travelled from Chichester to Carlisle and where it's currently on show at Tullie House. Sebastian Peake will be giving a talk there on 8th September.
Anyone travelling to Carlisle might like to also visit The Wordsworth Trust at nearby Grasmere where the illustrations for The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner are on permanent exhibition.
The next venue for this show is the Laing Gallery in Newcastle. This will be from 15th October 2011 to 8th January 2012.
And a concert
The Mervyn Peake concert given by the David le Page Trio at Candie Gardens on Guernsey on 29th August was very well received by a full audience, 200 of whom then attended the exhibition of Sark drawings at the Guernsey Museum and Art Gallery.
