Original manuscripts by Branwell Brontë exhibited alongside new art inspired by his stories about Angria and other works produced by the famous siblings of Haworth.

7 January - 23 February 2013

This exhibition highlights rarely seen manuscript material written by Branwell Brontë from the Brotherton Library Special Collections. The rich and complex world of landscapes, characters and events written whilst Branwell was still a teenager, has been 'brought to life' by illustration students from Leeds College of Art's Visual Communications course.
