I also work as a freelance rep for the Illustrators' Agency, Arena but just for six of the main UK children's book publishing clients.
Jim Kay and The Great War
Jim's illustrations for The Great War, published by Walker Books, are beautifully evocative without being too hard-hitting. This book, designed by David McDougal, is full of stories by the best of children's writers, a classic amongst the large amount of books on the subject, and now longlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

The combination of Walker and Jim Kay, together with Patrick Ness, has already been the winner of the medal, in 2012. The book, A Monster Calls. Prints from the illustrations are available here.
Grahame Baker Smith and the Kate Greenaway Medal
Grahame won the Kate Greenaway Medal for his book, FArTHER in 2011 and now he's on the longlist for 2015 with his book, Winter's Child, written by Angela McAllister. Congratulations to Grahame and to Templar Publishing, the publisher of both books.
John Harris interview for Red Blue Shift
Vidal Palacios asks John Harris some questions and once again, they give John the chance to see his work from another perspective. The above images are "Loading" (left), a pastel sketch and "Firebird" which was produced for the cover of the novel by Jack McDevitt for Ace Books. You can read the interview here.
Paul Hess's Pocket Fairy Tales
Paul Hess has illustrated two pop-out concertina books for Templar, The Sleeping Beauty (above) and Little Red Riding Hood. They're beautifully designed by Andy Mansfield, and when you open up the whole concertina you can see one half of the story on one side, and the rest on the back. Quite novel, and very pleasing.
Jim Kay at the British Library
We are delighted that the British Library have included the above print in their Gothic exhibition, Terror and Wonder where they cover the influence of Gothic imagery on 21st century fiction. This image is from A Monster Calls, by Patrick Ness, and is one of the most powerful. The cover image (featured in the catalogue of the exhibition) and two others are available from us as limited-edition giclee prints signed by Jim.

Here's a review in The Guardian.
Terror and Wonder at the British Library
The new exhibition at the British Library is a collection of the Gothic, in the broadest sense of the word. It's a wonderful show, and it includes one of Ian Miller's drawings from Gormenghast (above left). Signed giclee prints may be available from us at a later date but in the mean time there are three more of his beautiful detailed†Gormenghast images available as prints here. And there are many more like this in his new book.
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).
