Chris Riddell - UK Children's Laureate

We are, as ever, delighted to represent Chris Riddell and his new title as UK Children's Laureate 2015 - 17. We have signed books and original artwork by Chris Riddell which can be viewed online ( and here in the gallery (22 Bury Street, St. James's, London, SW1Y 6AL) 

In June, Chris told The Guardian newspaper “I want to bring drawing back to the basics, make it about the pleasure that it can afford and remove the notion that it’s some kind of precious or difficult activity. It’s another way of telling a story.”

Here are selection of Chris's brilliant artworks published in Coraline, written by Neil Gaiman and published by Bloomsbury 2012.

We also celebrate Chris Riddell as a political cartoonist and have some brilliant original pen and ink drawings which have been published in The Observer newspaper. 

Congratulations Chris!
