Frances Castle was commissioned by the Imperial War Museum to create illustrations for their new Kid's Guide to their London museum. The book is aimed at children aged 7 to 11 and had to be accessible and appealing to both girls and boys. IWM London re-opened it's doors after a refurbishment in July 2014, in time for the Centenary of the First World War and Frances' brief was to interpret the newly designed atrium with it's displays of iconic planes and other objects. She also produced a series of comic strips telling stories of people's experience of war and conflict up to the present day.
We’ve just received a copy of the fabulous ‘The Girls Guide To DIY’ written by Jo Vehari and Alison Winfield-Chislett. Published by New Holland and illustrated by Nila Aye, this book is the ultimate guide for the modern woman who wants to improve her home (without getting a man to help her!). Nila’s glamorous artworks wonderfully illustrate the hints and tips for doing DIY in style.
