For the 30th an­ni­ver­sa­ry of the pu­bli­ca­tion of the chil­dren’s book Ma­til­da, Quen­tin Blake – who illus­tra­ted the ori­gi­nal book – re­vea­led a se­ries of dra­wings that rei­ma­gine Roald Dahl’s be­lo­ved cha­rac­ter Ma­til­da as an adult. In five new images, the illus­tra­tor de­picts a 30-year-old Ma­til­da as a poet lau­reate, an as­tro­phy­si­cist, a spe­cial FX ar­tist, a “world tra­vel­ler”, and the CEO of the Bri­tish Li­bra­ry! Three of these dra­wings will ap­pear this month on the co­vers of spe­cial col­lec­tors’ edi­tions pu­bli­shed by Pen­guin Ran­dom House. Ma­til­da has been one of Roald Dahl’s best­sel­ling books since it was pu­bli­shed in 1988, with 17 mil­lion co­pies sold world­wide.
