Eastwing illustrator Damian Gascoigne was asked to collaborate on a very exclusive new book project.
Just 500 copies will be produced, each costing £750. This collector’s item will be on sale from 1st November exclusively from Random House.
From the hand-bound beluga leather casing to distinctive Bentley features such as hand-stitched embroidery and silver foil page edges, this special edition of Casino Royale is produced with only the very finest materials. Its striking red, white and black colouring is a nod to the gambling theme of Fleming’s first novel, where Bond famously takes on his adversary, Le Chiffre, over a game of baccarat. A special feature of this edition is the bespoke set of playing cards, hidden within a secret compartment. Throughout each book are evocative brush illustrations by the Award winning illustrator Damian Gascoigne.
Templar have come up with this brilliant idea to create a set of intricate and high end colouring books. The imprint, ‘Pictura’ is a series of “Art to collect and colour”. Our very own Niroot Puttapipat was one of the fantastic illustrators asked to take part in this exciting project. Niroot created a wonderful world of ‘Faeries’, designed to be enjoyed and coloured in any way the collector desires. Have a look at this great example of how you can colour in Niroot’s wonderful illustrations and just a glimpse of what is possible to do with these Pictura books here.

A Dream Life of Hackney Marshes is another beautifully crafted, limited edition album designed and illustrated by Frances Castle for Clay Pipe Music. Frances' atmospheric images are a perfect foil for Gareth E. Rees' words about the landscape of the Hackney Marshes and it's mix of ancient wetland, overgrown Victorian ruins, wild flower meadows, pylons, railway sidings and reservoirs. Ree's spoken word in collaboration with Jetsam's orchestration, takes us on a journey through this troubled dreamscape.
