What Are You Like?

HOUSE OF ILLUSTRATION

“What Are You Like” is a Victorian parlour game in which players are asked to describe themselves by drawing a series of pictures of their favourite things. The House of Illustration invited forty-five people to take part in their own version of the game. Each contributor also submitted an illustration of themselves as a letter of the alphabet, to make up the title identity for the show. This invitation and catalogue accompanied an exhibition at the Dulwich Picture Gallery and a number of other galleries nationwide.
