The Roger Lancelyn Green Memorial Lecture: John Vernon Lord – Illustrating Wonderland
Friday, 20 March 2009, London, U.K.
John Vernon Lord’s stunning illustrations for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland are due to be published this Spring by Artists’ Choice Editions, creators of beautifully printed and very collectable books, under the guidance of Dennis Hall. A former Professor of Illustration at the University of Brighton, Lord is the writer and illustrator of many works including the hugely successful The Giant Jam Sandwich. His illustrations to The Hunting of the Snark were extremely well received, particularly by members of the Lewis Carroll Society. The artist will talk about the challenges and the opportunities the book presents to an illustrator and discuss his personal response to them.
The Roger Lancelyn Green Memorial Lecture is an occasional series of special talks hosted by the Lewis Carroll Society (LCS U.K.) in memory of one of the pioneers of Carroll scholarship. Guests are welcome at the lecture, for which there is no charge, but they do request that non-members contact the society to reserve places.
