Cover and interior design by me, all 432 pages, it’s a good looking book if I may say so myself. Jam packed full of lovely impressive and large artworks and close up details featuring paintings from pre 1500 medieval art  The Annunciation by Fra Angelico, all the way up to modern day The King’s Death by Paula Rego, and of course everything in between – enjoy!

Evolution The Whole Story

Advance hand–bound copies of Evolution The Whole Story arrived in the Quintessence office and I think it looks fabulous! Do you like the cover?? The male chimpanzee photo on the front is by Brad Wilson – check out the rest of his work here, his photographs are absolutely magnificent.

It is such a momentous part of the book design process, just as exciting as it was with my first ever title. When you hold the complete book in your hand and all it’s parts come together to work in harmony, well that is the idea anyway! It’s always lovely to see soooo many months of work in the flesh finally, as long as you don’t look at it too closely and spot any mistakes…of which there are none in here, of course! 

It will be published by Thames & Hudson in the UK, and is out in Sept 2015. You can pre-order your copy here now!

I’ll share with you some sample spreads shortly, to give you sneak peak at the inside!

Architecture The Whole Story

IMG_7009Showcasing a new book that’s out and about now – Architecture: The Whole Story, which was published by Thames & Hudson (UK), Prestel (US) in Autumn 2014, that I designed in collaboration with Tom Howey at Quintessence. He designed the key focus spreads and I designed all the essay spreads. The jackets were also designed by Tom, this image showcases the UK edition. I’ll share some snapshots of how the interior looks shortly.
