The Rite of the Hidden Sun

fire-eclipseHow apt, that there should be a total solar eclipse over the US just when we’re ready to launch a new part of the website which describes The Rite of the Hidden Sun. This is the body of work which John Harris has worked on, quietly in the background amongst everything else, for many years. He can also be seen here, talking about it. More to come soon.

Harry Potter Preview

hp-azkaban-and-beastsToday we’ll be gathering at Bloomsbury HQ with publishers, librarians and booksellers to display the work of Jim Kay in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and of Olivia Lomenech Gill in the illustrated edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. These books have involved a monumental amount of work for all concerned (illustrators, editors, designers, production team) but I have to say that having seen much of the finished product it seems to have been worthwhile.
