Marian Hill for Hutchinson

Marian Hill was commissioned by Hutchinson to illustrate the cover for "Tomorrow There Will Be Apricots" by Jessica Soffer.
 
Marian's beautiful illustration, created by collaging together tiny pieces of magazine, is perfectly suited to the story of an Iraqi immigrant woman and an almost-orphan in New York City, brought together by cookery lessons.

Tom Cole’s latest covers

Tom Cole has blown us all away AGAIN with this series for the "James Herriot Memoirs" commissioned by Littlebrown. As you can see the series of 4 covers fit together to make one panarmaic landscape, beautiful. New to the industry Tom proves how diverse you can be whilst still keeping true to a unique style. We didn't think that Space Race could be beaten so quickly. Everyone is jealous of your bold and confident colours. Well done Tom can't wait to see what's next.
