Peake's Pictures


I'm always fascinated by authors who are also artists and one of my very favourites is Mervyn Peake of Gormenghast fame. The Guardian features a slide show of his work to celebrate the acquisition by The British Library of the author's 39 Gormenghast notebooks, his complete set of original drawings for Lewis Carroll's Alice books and personal correspondence with author.  More about the collection here.
