The latest film follows last year’s Goodbye Christopher Robin, which looked at the life of Winnie-the-Pooh creator A.A. Milne and the origins of the classic children’s book.

The 2017 biographical movie explored how A.A. Milne invited his friend, the artist and illustrator Ernest Howard Shepard, to his home to develop the classic children’s books.

It’s that pair’s creative relationship which comes under the spotlight in the Winnie-the-Pooh: Exploring a Classic exhibition at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art, which was previously seen at London's V&A.

The exhibition looks in detail at the highly successful collaboration between the author and illustrator and brings the stories to life as visitors are guided through the tales.

Speaking about the exhibition, Virginia Shearer, the High Museum of Art’s director of education told AP: “It’s the idea that a writer can imagine a whole world but the written descriptions can only go so far, and then the illustrations take you the next step".

The original map of The Hundred Acre Wood, created by E. H. Shepard in 1926 recently sold for £430,000 in the English Literature, History, Science, Children’s Books and Illustrations in London.

The sale also included four more original Winnie-the-Pooh sketches by Shepard that had remained unseen for nearly 50 years.
