About the event

Eli John is an illustrator working from a studio in the Pendle Forest, Witch Country, Lancashire. This melancholy landscape is a worthy setting as John works predominantly within the horror genre, inspired by supernatural and weird fiction, folklore, ghost stories and gothic literature, creating dark visions of sublime beauty and unsettling psychological landscapes. He has worked for publisher's in the UK, Europe and the United States.

Following a short film, Eli John will be taking questions about MR James, weird fiction and it's influence on his art and illustrations. This event will be downstairs in the tea room. Meanwhile,Eli John's exhibition- Peripheral Phantoms- Illustrating MR James, will be on display in the library.
