Painting the Tales – the book!
A week ago I finished the text for ‘Painting the tales’, a book due to be published next year by the History press featuring full colour plates of 84 of my book cover illustrations. The accompanying text contains anecdotes and information about my illustration process and my thoughts about the tales I chose. It also contains comments from some of the authors and the foreword has been written by the excellent Taffy Thomas MBE, the first storytelling laureate.
I will share news of the publication date and where you order in advance as soon as I have it, some will be available direct from me and will be signed and contain an extra little gift for my fans…
