Spring at Moyse’s Hall: 3 Displays, 1 Museum

The Terrible Tales of Moyse’s Hall are a series of short stories written by Horrible Histories author Terry Deary inspired by our infamous Crime and Punishment collections, the book bound in human skin, the scalp of a murderer, witchcraft, and more.

“Why can’t you draw something nice…?”

David Hughes is an internationally acclaimed illustrator who has worked for Time Magazine, The New Yorker, The Observer, Granada TV, The Daily Express, The Guardian, The BBC, Punch, The Folio Society and many more. We are proud to present a display that spans his career, focusing on his satire, illustrations, and popular culture.
