The Silk Roads – illustrations finished!

Neil Packer’s work for the illustrated edition of Silk Roads is detailed, informative – and also hugely stylish. It’s been a mammoth task but this edition, adapted by Peter Frankopan, will appeal not just to children but to anyone interested in finding out more about the history of this fascinating East-West phenomenon.

The Journal

I was delighted to receive a copy of The Journal, published by Jon Schindehette at The Art Order. What an amazing production. Asking artists to include some narrative gave everyone a chance to think slightly differently. This was John Harris’s spread.

A History of Magic

The exhibition which has seen queues of eager people outside the British Library ends today. The combination of Harry Potter and literally, the history of magic, has been a huge success and will travel to New York in October, and then hopefully beyond. If you missed it, you can still read about it in this magnificent book.

To mark the end, Google “Arts and Culture” have interviewed some of the people involved, including Jim Kay.

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.
