Once Upon A Time

Cellardoor recently popped to the opening of ‘The Enchanted Forest’ exhibition at Foyles bookshop on Charring Cross Road. This collection of illustrated works comes courtesy of rising stars Emmeline Pidgen, Emma Block and Laura Barrett to name but a few.  

The exhibit celebrates 200 years of Grimms Fairy Tales, with works inspired by childhood classics like Hansel and Gretel, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty.  Each illustrator has interpreted the much loved stories in their own way, with damsels in distress, majestic castles and noble steeds featuring strongly in typical fairytale fashion. 

On display was a variety of illustration styles from bold monochrome block prints to whimsical watercolour representations and clever collage techniques. The perfect escape from the December chill, this exhibition had Cellardoor dreaming of a happy ever after.

Sadly the exhibition is now over, but find out more from the talented girls here

I was way too young back in 2012 to even know about this exhibition. But seeing the pictures now in the middle of giving my finance essay help, I am just star-struck. The illustration from Emmeline Pidgen is my most favorite. I watch her blog regularly as well. I really hope and pray that there are more exhibitions like this that I could get to attend now.
