Bugs wins the Children's Choice
The 2014 Information Book Awards were presented yesterday at the Bath Festival and I'm very pleased to say that Bugs, illustrated by Jim Kay and written by George McGavin won the Children's Choice in the age 7-12 category. Congratulations to all involved, including Louise Jackson (designer at Walker Books) and Richard Ferguson (paper engineer).
Where My Wellies Take Me
This beautiful and evocative†book of poems describing a childhood walk through rural England is now out in paperback. Conceived and written by Michael and Clare Morpurgo, it's illustrated by Olivia Lomenech Gill partly with her own etchings and drawings and partly in a child-like style to capture the look of a child's scrapbook. The perfect gift for a child or an adult.
From the future to the medieval
Whatever period the costume, Gordon Crabb's women can look quite alluring. We have a huge collection of stock images now, mostly of girls, but there are also some men and children. We add to it all the time so keep looking if you're interested in book cover potential.
Missing IlluxCon
This will be the first time in four years that John Harris has missed IlluxCon. We wanted to send our best wishes to all the participants for 2014. I'm sure we'll be back in 2015 and in the mean time there's a new book about his work here and some originals for sale here.
Jim Burns heading for Allentown
Jim has produced some beautiful new work to take to IlluxCon next week. From 17th to 21st he'll be showing new paintings, including the two above, K.K. and the Maintenance Squad (left) and Anesidora's Choice (right). Also a magnificent collection of giclee prints - these and more.
The Four-Book Finale
In theory Jim's new book, The Art of Jim Burns: Hyperluminal, won't be published until 30th September 2014 but there was a chance to buy an early copy at Worldcon so that visitors to the convention could have theirs signed along with the other three books published by Titan this year. So in the photo above you can see John Harris, Ian Miller, Jim Burns and Fred Gambino.

After all the head-scratching about what should go into the books, the sessions with the Titan team, and the care with presenting all the digital files it was sensational to see how good they all looked, and to have queues of people who wanted to buy them. Many thanks to all involved.
A Lifetime of Artistic Achievement
Jim Burns was 'surprised and honoured' to receive the 'Lifetime Artistic Achievement' Chesley Award at Loncon. I wasn't surprised because I probably know better than most just how hard he's worked over the past forty years, how many authors he's pleased with his visual interpretations of aspects of their novels and how 'in tune' he is with much of what's going on in the whole world of SF. Anyone can see how good an artist he is but I feel privileged to have seen his dedication behind the scenes and witnessed his attention to detail for all those years.

It's a long time to keep a career going and I think this award is very much deserved. And still to have so much energy for new projects - which keep on coming.

The illustration above will show you the full painting, Wanderers, some of which is cropped off on the cover of his new book. And on the right? The Chesley Award. Great stuff.
