Exhibition images - The House of the World

But what about the pictures? I hear you say.

A lot of work on display was from my published books etc, especially my last two picture books The Boat in the Tree (Front Street, USA) and The House of the World (Benesse, Japan). The latter title is part of the Benesse Worldwide Kids series in Japan and is not available in the shops, so here's a couple of spreads that were on display.

Hi John - I agree with Karen Lee! And in addition, I like the joyous colour washes of these backgrounds! Delighted to be able to glimpse your Tokyo exhibition here - a long time since I've been on jacketflap. I'll come back more often now!
