The National Library of Wales has until recently been devoid of a photographic portrait of one of the best-loved writers to have heralded from Wales, Roald Dahl.

That has now been rectified with their recent acquisition of a portrait by photographer Mark Gerson. The portrait, purchased at an auction at Bonhams, will now join a collection of special edition books by the author that are held at the library.

To see the recently acquired portrait and for more on the story, visit the WalesOnline website.
