Displayed in the museum's CBS Outdoor Gallery, the 'London Stories' exhibition showcases the best entries to this year's Serco Prize for Illustration. The brief was simple: illustrate a well-known or obscure London story, contemporary or historical, real or imagined. The results draw on all sorts of sources, from urban myths to well-known historical events, from Lenin’s ‘love letter to London’ via an escaped monkey jazz band to the Pearly Kings and Queens. This year, the exhibition includes five short animated films.
