The tale of kitty-in-boots

Posted: Tuesday 1st November 2016

A manuscript written over 100 years ago by beloved author, Beatrix Potter, has recently been rediscovered. It is now on show at House of Illustration with iconic illustrations provided by Quentin Blake.

The manuscript tells the story of a well-behaved black cat who leads rather a double life, and features classic Potter characters including Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and the mischievous Peter Rabbit.

Tickets are available to book on the House of Illustration website and the exhibition will run until 26 February 2017.
