Nurses, WAAF’s maids and children

Gordon’s expertise with uniforms of every kind is well known. His care and kindness when photographing children is a delight. Small children don’t much enjoy wearing an itchy cardigan, a strange dress and uncomfortable shoes and then manage to look appealingly at the camera. Somehow he manages to achieve fantastic results. Even if he is exhausted at the end of the shoot. More stock here.

Behind the scenes with Gordon Crabb’s covers

It’s rare to go into a bookshop here in the UK, particularly W H Smith, without finding a Gordon Crabb cover prominently displayed. At the moment, the shops are full of Harper Collins’ book, The Christmas Wedding which is the latest in the series of Dilly Court novels. He’s been working on those for many years and they are among the best.

Silkscreen prints of The Balrog

Ian Miller went in to Make-Ready printmakers in North London last week to view, sign and number the prints. They are really quite stunning quality, and we now have nine to sell. We made it a small edition as this was a first experiment with the process but we just couldn’t be more pleased with the results. The detail is extraordinary. More on that here.

Neil Packer’s Tool Shed

Is this how you keep your tools? This is one of the illustrations from Neil’s forthcoming book about taxonomy, One of a Kind. It’s about so much more than how we sort things out though. We’re going to exhibit some of the work, as well as his originals for The Odyssey and The Iliad and other prints next year. There will be more on that in our newsletter so let me know if you’d like to be signed up.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Jim Kay has now signed many many copies of the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, published last month. Here he is, eagerly getting on with the next book, which is fatter than ever. He just wants to be left alone for a while now. You can read about him in the New York Times though.
