Once Upon A Wartime
This touring exhibition delves into the pages of the well-loved books below, bringing five stories of war dramatically to life.
War Horse by Michael Morpurgo
Carrie’s War by Nina Bawden
The Machine Gunners by Robert Westall
The Silver Sword by Ian Serraillier
Little Soldier by Bernard Ashley
We printed direct to a variety of materials to help distinguish between each story’s rich narrative. Including maple veneer backdrops of Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse, Stirling Board printed crumbling bricks and rubble of The Silver Sword, the ash veneer printed yew tree woods immersing the visitor in Carrie’s War and the stark contrasts of Little Soldier’s two way mirror past to present interpretation.
