John Vernon Lord: Illustrating Carroll and Joyce

Extraordinary pen and ink illustrations for five books

Chris Riddell ~ “A spellbinding exhibition”

 The Guardian ~ “Dense illustrations – full of dark wit and symbolism… This show looks at how his exacting imagination let rip on Finnegan’s Wake, Ulysses and the Alice series.”

John Vernon Lord’s pen and ink drawings are rich with metaphor, pattern and code. This exhibition features his extraordinary work for five books by James Joyce and Lewis Carroll.
