My thanks to Hannah Stephenson at The Storialist for introducing me to Jeffers's artwork. A monograph of Jeffers's paintings, collages, installations, and collaborative works, Neither Here Nor There: The Art of Oliver Jeffers, was published by Gestalten in 2012. A limited-edition of the mongraph is available through Jeffers's Website, where you'll also find images of a selection of his paintings.
