Flowering Plants of Great Britain

The flower images in this book are in such soft colours and remarkably detailed –  a real pleasure to work with. I wanted to create the effect of a typical English garden – the design presented a few technical challenges along the way.

I have more volumes in this series and am looking forward to working on them in the future. In the mean time, I’m in the happy position of having books piled high in my studio – books that I’ve discovered in some junk shop or other or been donated by friends and acquaintances.

Dr Syntax’s Three Tours

CO Dr Syntaxs Three Tours - sideview

Another book just finished. Dr Syntax’s Three Tours: In Search of the Picturesque, Consolation and a Wife. This is a charming little Victorian book with delightfully humorous cartoon-style illustrations in a rich but limited pallette, which have lent themselves well to the creation of interactions between the characters. I had a lot of fun with this one.
