Indian culture has always been a big inspiration for Phosphor Art’s Poonam Mistry, and her highly detailed illustration style lends itself well to traditional stories. Poonam has recently embarked on an exciting new project, translating Indian folk tales and fables and illustrating them in her unique style.
Phosphor Art’s Poonam Mistry has just completed an exciting project illustrating a book containing stories and poems from across the Commonwealth. A River of Stories Volume 2: Earth was commissioned by Lift Education and The Commonwealth Education Trust.
Kate Forrester was asked by Macmillan to create this beautiful cover for ‘Poems from the First World War’, “…a moving collection of poems written by people who experienced the war first hand”. You can buy the book here.

Oscar Wilson has been working with Canongate Books on the cover art for the
postumous memoir of Gil Scott Heron entitled The Last Holiday. Oscar worked
closely with the team at Canongate to create this iconic image of Gil made
from selected poems and lyrics.
Gil Scott-Heron's Publisher and friend Jamie Byng said of the work: "I think
Oscar has created an iconic image of Gil and one that will become widely
known and it makes the whole book come together beautifully. Words were so
important in Gil's life and he loved playing with them so having this image
of him in which he is literally made of words seems perfectly apt especially
for a memoir which is made up of his words."
