The creator of the Gormenghast series of Gothic fantasies, Mervyn Peake was an extremely versatile creative force. As a writer, his surreal fiction has been likened to the work of Tolkien; as an illustrator, he brought to life some of the most famous works of fiction for generations of children, including iconic editions of Treasure Island, Alice in Wonderland and Household Tales by the Brothers Grimm.To mark the centenary of his birth, Pallant House Gallery presents a display of his most famous illustrations and prints.
