Zagazoo Fabrics and Wallpapers Capture the Magic of Childhood

My Mother tells me that I spent most of my childhood upside down; perhaps that is why I love pattern so much - it doesn't matter which way up you are! When I wasn't in a handstand, turning cartwheels, or somersaulting on the trampoline, I was deeply engrossed in a Roald Dahl book. Teamed with the celebrated illustrator Quentin Blake, the books had a magic about them that I still feel now when I pick up The Witches, James and the Giant Peach, The Twits, and others in the vast collection. The magic lives on in our house, with my daughter's favourite picture book: Quentin Blake's Mister Magnolia.

Quentin Blake is a hugely successful children's book illustrator and author, much-loved throughout the world, and his wonderfully expressive art can now be part of your interior design. Zagazoo children's fabrics and wallpapers, by Quentin Blake, were designed exclusively for Osborne & Little. All the patterns are based on Quentin's original book illustrations.
