I was recently commissioned by 999 Design for Guardian Books to create illuminated letters for the Edinburgh International Book Festival I had to come up for a concept for each genre, using an illustrated quote by a famous author; Alexander McCall Smith for crime, Mark Haddon for children’s, Hilary Mantel for historical fiction and Jasper Fforde for fantasy. The finished images appeared on
deckchairs, canvas bags, stickers, beer mats and book plates.
