The Unreliable Life of Harry The Valet

James Brown produced this brilliant cover for the ‘The Unreliable Life of Harry The Valet’ in collaboration with Meiklejohn artist Piers Sanford.  The combination of James’ retro typography and Piers’ etching created a great Victorian Billboard feel for this true story of the most infamous Victorian Jewel thief.

God Loves You

Our ace paper-sculptress Gail Armstrong has been enjoying a busy period.

This recent commission from Brigham Young University, sees Gail creating the title page and inserts for an article in the BYU magazine. Gail says: "The client, Doug Thomas wanted it to have the feel of an illuminated manuscript, but not to look too 'old fashioned'. I kept the colouring clean and crisp with the sharp white background, and the imagery in the title page links to the imagery in the illuminated roman numerals that are used in the main text."

Ruth and James

It's been a musical summer for lettering artist Ruth Rowland.

Hot on the heels of the Lennon job, she has just completed the latest James Blunt album. "Some Kind Of Trouble" plus his latest single, "Stay The Night" sees loose, brush style lettering created to work with the overall design of the packaging which has an old school, scrapbook feel. The layouts were put together traditionally with sellotape and paper and then photographed. The style is also taken through to James Blunt's website.

John Lennon’s 70th Birthday

More lettering mastery from Ruth Rowland who was thrilled to create the lettering for John Lennon’s "Gimme Some Truth Campaign" to commemorate his 70th birthday.

Overseen by Yoko Ono and EMI Music and using many samples of Lennon’s own writing, Ruth developed hand drawn lettering for use across the album to capture some of his light humour. The logo for the campaign was inspired by the small calligraphic self portraits that often accompanied his signature.
