More on Quentin Blake / Roald Dahl

“His style is so alive that you feel every line is electric.”
Emma Chichester Clark

“There is no-one to touch him.” Roald Dahl.

Just say the name Quentin Blake and a smile is already playing around the corners of your mouth. His first drawings were published in Punch when he was 16. He has illustrated nearly 300 books with writers such as Russell Hoban, Joan Aiken, Michael Rosen, John Yeoman and, most famously of all, Roald Dahl. He has also illustrated classic books for adults, and created his own characters such as Mister Magnolia and Mrs Armitage.

For many years he taught at the Royal College of Art , where he was head of the Illustration Department from 1978 to 1986. He has won many awards and prizes, and was made an OBE in 1988 and a CBE in 2005 for services to children's literature. According to The Guardian, he was 'already a national institution' when he was appointed the first Children's Laureate in 1999.

Quentin Blake was knighted in the Queen's 2013 New Year's Honours List - "Quite a nice 80th birthday present!" he commented....

Roald Dahl was born in Wales 1916, to Norwegian parents. After a distinguished career as a fighter pilot and diplomat during the Second World War, Roald Dahl settled down to become a fulltime author; first writing popular stories for adults; then, later, retelling many of the stories he made up at bedtime for his own children .The first book Roald Dahl and illustrator Quentin Blake worked upon together was THE ENORMOUS CROCODILE. Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake soon became firm friends, cementing one of the most eye-catching and distinctive collaborations in children’s literature. Roald Dahl died in 1990. His work has been published in over 40 languages and today is considered one of the world's greatest ever children's authors.
