2018 marks 250 years since the publication of A Sentimental Journey. In celebration of this anniversary, the Laurence Sterne Trust commissioned Martin Rowson to illustrate a new edition for the Shandy Hall Press.

Surrounded by his original drawings for this work in the gallery at Shandy Hall, the artist will discuss literal, literary and graphic journeys - journeys through your mind and across the page - from Hogarth's Progresses (which were always regressive, ironic and ended badly) via Sterne to the 'journeying narrative' of the strip cartoon or comic book. 

Martin Rowson is one of our finest cartoonists, with work appearing regularly in The Guardian. He has published graphic novel versions of The Waste LandTristram Shandy and the Communist Manifesto.  He is chair of the British Cartoonists Association and in 2006 he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Journalism from the University of Westminster. In 2014 he was appointed to an Honorary Fellowship by Goldsmiths, University of London. He is a vice-president of the Zoological Society of London.
