Sir Quentin Blake  - I Dreamt I Could Fly

Read the creation story behind this Dream Jar

Quentin wanted to make his dream jar simple and ensure it would provide a contrast to the design of other dream jars. His vision was reproduced using his brilliant artwork and his idea of representing pages of a book were finalised to the delight of the creators.
