Thomas Flintham: Marvellous Maths Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Awards 2014

We are very pleased to announce that Thomas Flintham's Marvellous Maths, written by Jonathan Litton and published by Templar, has been shortlisted in the 'Best Book for Facts' category for the very influential Blue Peter Book Awards 2014. The two winning books will be announced live on Blue Peter for World Book Day on 6th March 2014.

Marvellous Maths is an engaging and exciting exploration of maths, from the invention of zero to the geometry of a donut! Clear, humorous text with Tom's bright illustrations and interactive novelties help explain topics including numbers, geometry, probability, transformations and statistics. The focus is on making maths accessible and exciting, so each topic has an investigation for young number-smiths to try at home.

It's been Thomas Flintham's month as his book, Molecule Mayhem, written by Tom Adams, won this year's 2013 ALCS Award for Educational Writing. This book is an outstanding example of a non-fiction pop-up chemistry book that inspires young readers aged 5-11 years, as it seeks to engage by introducing them to complex concepts in the strange nature of matter.

Daniela Terrazzini for JJ Books, Brahma Dreaming

Here is a sneak peak of what our super talented Daniela Terrazzini has been working very hard on during the past few months, the second in the series of books by John Jackson, ‘Brahma Dreaming’.  Rave reviews are popping up everywhere ahead if it’s release in October, read the most recent one from The Guardian here.

Entertaining Etiquette

'The Debrett’s Guide to Entertaining Etiquette' is brimming with the illustrative work of Kavel Rafferty. And now available to buy, this book is hard to resist purchasing because of the beauty of Kavel's drawing. Karen Wilks, designer of the book says "Working with Kavel was an absolute pleasure, with over 60 illustrations in the book we worked in batches. Kavel understood exactly what we were trying to achieve and was very accommodating and all the deadlines were met on time. The day each batch arrived was a day I really looked forward to, it was like unwrapping presents, everyone was a gem and her compositions and colour palette worked perfectly. Kavel brings warmth and humour to all her work combining her painting and photoshop skills beautifully with a small nod towards her interest in the 50’s and 60’s. I very much hope we have a chance to work together again soon."

Tequila Mockingbird

Towards the end of last year Lauren Mortimer illustrated 'Tequila Mockingbird'; a cocktail book published by Running Press.  The book which contains recipes based on classic novels is now out and available to buy!

Lauren was commissioned to produce 40 full page illustrations, as well as the cover. She says "My job was to illustrate the recipes incorporating key themes from the book upon which it was based. I used only graphite, creating quite surreal images throughout; (Lord of the Mai Tai's, Charlie and the Chocolate Faketini, Gin Eyre are a few of the titles....), it was such a fun and great creative project for me...it also got a great review in the Evening Standard (news)paper."
