BETTY LAROM Exhibition

This new exhibition at Seven Stories celebrates the work of Betty Larom and her husband Neville Main - famous for their comic art, nostalgic illustrations and, as of 2022, featuring in British fashion designer Molly Goddard’s AW22 Collection (as worn by Harry Styles in the ‘Boyfriends’ music video in June 2022).


Betty’s daughter Carol Baldwin said:

“My brother and I are delighted that Seven Stories are exhibiting our mother and stepfather's books and artwork. The exhibition showcases a brilliant era for the development of children's books and comics, in which they both had a major involvement."

The exhibition features original and facsimile items from both Betty Larom and Neville Main’s archive which is in the Seven Stories Collection, a commentary from Molly Goddard, as well as interactive elements for children.

We are running special events to celebrate the opening of the exhibition including tshirt design craft sessions for all ages



Exclusive Betty Larom merchandise is for sale in our new online shop. It is also available in the Seven Stories Bookshop (NE1 2PQ), open 10am – 5pm everyday.
