This gorgeous colour pencil drawing was drawn by Jill Murphy for All In One Piece
, her cult picture book featuring The Large Family.
Published in 1987 to huge acclaim, this is a chance to own a signed piece of artwork which appeared in the book. The artwork is centred on a large piece of acid free paper and is matted ready for framing.
Jill Murphy's characters became such household favourites in fact, that The BBC decided to adapt them for television, and there are now several series of 'The Large Family' available to watch as well as the books being translated into many languages.
Murphy's observations are beautiful and full of humour, both for younger readers and also adults.
Murphy has been commended, shortlisted and won a plethora of book awards including The Smarties Prize, the Kate Greenaway Medal, the Children's Book Award and the Gateshead Gold Award to name just a few.
The artist's recent passing will leave fans saddened and Jill, who was also the author of the incredibly popular series The Worst Witch, will be greatly missed. Professionally matted ready for framing.
