The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night was being sold at the Stylist Live event this year. Looking handsome as part of the Sunday section.
Also we went to watch the catwalk and I love this sparkly outfit.
Christmas books I have designed this year under our tree. All ready for Christmas day!
And the tiniest Christmas tree ever has another book too.
Quick update that I have now changed my website address to nataliejade.co.uk.
The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night gets more book design/illustration love as it is featured in this week’s Spine Magazine (3rd November 2017). See the article here: http://spinemagazine.co/book-covers-we-love/110317
Art direction by me. Illustration and lettering by the talented Aitch.
Usually, I wait until a month before Christmas to do a post on something festive related that I have worked on. But as I’ve designed a trio of books this year, I want to shamelessly share it earlier. I art directed two beautiful and glittery titles perfect for snuggling into a cosy sofa on a wintry cold day:
Christmas at Mistletoe Cottage by Lucy Daniels. Illustrated by the lovely Sara Mulvanny. This is the second book in the Hope Meadows series that follows on from Summer at Hope Meadows.
Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe by Melissa De La Cruz. Gorgeous illustration by Robyn Neild. This is a modern retelling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice with the main characters genders swapped over.
On the contrary, I have art directed the cover for Ghosts of the Christmas Past. Illustrated by the brilliant Darren Hopes. This is a collection of chilling short stories from authors such as Neil Gaiman.
…And there is only 52 days left to Christmas!
The Bookseller has highlighted The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night as part of their Cover design round-up: November 2017. The book cover was illustrated and complete with hand lettering by the very talented Aitch. Art direction by me.

The finished book is lovely – printed directly onto the fine linen, clear foil and individual short story headers also beautifully drawn by Aitch.
