Neil Packer on Instagram

Neil Packer has put a glorious abundance of his work on Instagram (arvokimchi). It makes it very easy to see what he’s been doing over the past year or two. All stunning, from the extremely well-observed detail of his illustrations for One Hundred Years of Solitude and Foucault’s Pendulum for the Folio Society, to the wonderfully expressive work for The Iliad and the Odyssey for Walker Books. We have originals for sale, and will produce prints this year too.

The above image is a Viking, in preparation for the illustrated History of the World by Peter Frankopan, to be published by Bloomsbury later this year.

Norse Myths, Book of the Week

Great news today. Norse Myths is The Times’ Children’s Book of the Week (UK). Also Joanne Owen of Love Reading, describes the illustrations by Jeffrey Alan Love as “sublime: foreboding, cleverly scaled and incisively expressive”. In Bags of Books “the strange world of ancient magic, giants, dwarfs and monsters is unforgettably imagined”. Whether you like the US cover (above left) or the UK one, this book is certainly making waves.

Death Star

I’ve always like this painting of the Death Star by John Harris. The original has been sold but it would make a nice print.
