The Lavender Blue Dress is the first children's book from the acclaimed indie singer-songwriter Aidan Moffat alongside illustrations by award-winning Emmeline Pidgen. It tells the story of Mabel, a little girl who wants nothing more than a beautiful dress to wear to her Christmas ball. Mabel's family can't afford to get her the lavender blue dress she wants, but can they find another way to send her to the ball in a beautiful gown? This exhibition shows illustrative work from the book.
