Grahame Baker Smith has a passion for early life on Earth so it’s been an absolute pleasure for him to produce many illustrations for this book, written so beautifully by Martin Jenkins and commissioned by Walker Books. We have released just three of the interior illustrations so far.
Congratulations also to Grahame whose book The Rhythm of the Rain has been nominated for the 2019 Kate Greenaway Medal.
Olivia Lomenech Gill has a particular interest in poetry – and I think her covers show that.
The new edition of this masterful book, by Peter Frankopan (adapted by him for a younger readership) will be published on 4th October. To celebrate publication, Bloomsbury have animated some of Neil Packer’s illustrations and the result is really effective. Neil has cleverly used different styles in the book to highlight different cultures and periods. Here are his Aztecs. Watch the film here. And buy the book here.
Here’s a chance to have a 40th Anniversary edition of Spacecraft 2000-2100 AD. Sign up for the Kickstarter campaign before it’s too late. You could also receive a beautiful Jim Burns print, or a book signed by Stewart Cowley.
I think this is a good example of Ian’s amazing drawing skill. More sketches and originals here.
Here’s Jim (right) with his fellow Harry Potter illustrators in San Diego this week. It’s been a hectic tour and there’s more to come yet, when he goes back to New York to meet more Scholastic people as well as seeing the New York Historical Society, the next venue for the Harry Potter exhibition we first saw at The British Library in London.
John Harris’s online exhibition with IX Arts can be seen here. It’s a collection of work which represents a voyage through “Space and Time, witnessing and recording in Drawings and Paintings, the Wonders found among the Stars”. The image above, is Building the Ark – where it all begins.
Neil Packer has illustrated both One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Foucault’s Pendulum by Umberto Eco. His interpretations of these two classic books are beautifully considered, and we can now offer them as signed giclee limited-edition prints.
This is a delightful series of covers to work on. Gordon produced these for Nick Stearn at Bonnier Zaffre. There are also many images available as ready-made stock – and we’ve just added a lot more.
Produced for Del Rey. For more of Jeffrey’s work, including news of his new graphic novel coming in the autumn, just go to his own website.
