Gordon Crabb, stock photography

What a difference a year makes. Gordon photographed these sisters a year ago, dressed as Victorians, and now just recently as 40’s or 50’s children. They look quite miserable here but I gather that there was much bouncing on the beds during the tea break. More of his stock photography here.

Two of John Harris’s images have appeared in the background of the hapless Stefan’s bedroom. More to come in subsequent programmes, perhaps?

Life! The First Four Billion Years

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.

Poetry book covers

Olivia Lomenech Gill has a particular interest in poetry – and I think her covers show that.

The Silk Roads, publication

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.

Jim Kay at Comic Con

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.
