The Farseer Trilogy broke exciting new ground in the fantasy genre and launched Hobb's career. She has gone onto write many other bestselling series but has returned to her beloved character Fitz with this gripping new chapter in the saga. Fool's Assassin is the first book in the Fitz and the Fool Trilogy and we're really looking forward to seeing Alejandro's illustrations for the rest of the series.

Nature comes to Zizzi

James Grover adds more of his magic to the walls of Zizzi Ristorante in Market Harborough.

The mural was hand drawn live on site, using acrylic pen paints and emulsion. And referencing the history of the area with it’s close proximity to Rockingham Forest, James says “In prehistoric times the area was the largest expanse of woodland in the country, but deforestation has seen a large reduction in its size. More recently, in medieval England, the forest was allocated as a Royal Hunting Forest where wild boar, fallow deer and pheasant were in abundance. Nowadays, the remaining forest is protected and is still a key feature of the area.”  Another superb Zizzi interior by James!
