Oliver Jeffers

Best known for his distinctive and delightful picture books for young children, Oliver Jeffers is a Belfast born artist who likes to tell stories, ask questions, draw pictures, and make life enjoyable for those who follow his work. For almost two decades Jeffers has worked in painting, bookmaking, illustration, collage, and sculpture. Titled Universes, his new work for the Gardner’s Anne H. Fitzpatrick Façade continues his exploration of the cosmos showing the plural perspectives of our internal and external spaces of wonder.

This large-scale image depicts a woman in her own universe at home deeply engrossed in a storybook-- while outside the blue night reaches up and out of the frame. The glow from her window is bright and warm, and above her the vast blue cosmos extends out to planets, stars, comets, and beyond.

Our collection features a reproduction of Universes and celebrates Jeffers' most popular works. Be transported from the page and go wherever your imagination can take you.
