Bookshop in May 2017

I went books shopping and spotted in the Foyle’s window display These Dividing Walls hardback I designed.

It was also a part of the new titles special promotion display inside the store.

Harmless Like You paperback makes an appearance.

The hardback is also a part of the front of store display.

Harmless Like You Paperback Edition

I have designed a new cover for the paperback edition of Harmless Like You. I am really pleased with the outcome and the book is an amazing read. In the past 1960s narrative, a Japanese girl has an ambition to be an artist, in the present day narrative her son is dealing with his feelings from his mother’s abandonment. I love how each chapter beginning, beautifully describes a different colour of paint that sets a particular mood. You can read examples of this on my Quotes page.

Bookshop in February 2017

At Stanfords bookshop, we are globe trotting my book cover designs.

In Iceland, there are copies of Moonstone by Sjón. This is illustrated by the wonderfully talented Owen Gent.

Moonstone is also proudly part of The Best of European Literature display.

In Switzerland, there are multiple copies of The Gilded Chalet by Padraig Rooney displayed facing out in all its glory. The portraits of Byron, Mary Shelley and James Joyce are illustrated by the speedy and super talented Alan Vest. Alan also illustrates author portraits regularly for The Guardian, so it was great to have him on board with this project.
