Queen Victoria’s scrapbook

My family trail for Kensington Palace‘s new permanent exhibition, Victoria Revealed, is now finished. The exhibition opened this week and gives visitors a chance to see many of Queen Victoria’s personal possessions, from her elaborately named dolls to her paintbox, stockings and dancing shoes.

 The family trail I’ve designed and illustrated helps visitors learn a little more about Victoria’s life, and there’s also a puzzle to complete.

I made a font out of my own handwriting to give the trail the feel of a personal scrapbook, with lots of overlapping images.

Today I visited the palace to do a few final tweaks – it was lovely to see all the exhibits in place, particularly my favourite: a very tiny painting of Albert’s greyhound, Eos, with thumbnail sized portraits of Victoria and Albert’s other dogs all around.
