Nicolette Jones’s illustrated talk will consider the themes, techniques and importance of Briggs’s work, his sense of fun, and her own memories of working with him. Jones is co-curator of the exhibition and the author of two books about Briggs – Blooming Books (Cape) and The Illustrators: Raymond Briggs (Thames & Hudson).

This event is being hosted as part of Cambridge University Libraries’ exhibition, Raymond Briggs: A Retrospective (29 April – 26 August 2023). You are welcome to explore the exhibition before this event. Please note there will not be time to visit the exhibition at the end of the event.
