Down and Out in Paris and London

Paul Catherall illustrates a book cover for George Orwell's classic novel 'Down and Out in Paris and London' for Penguin Books. Catherall combines an expert eye for composition and colour with consummate draughtsmanship to create striking and iconic images. He is renowned for his clean, sharp linocuts of architectural landmarks and draws his inspiration from mid 20th century poster designers such as Tom Eckersley and Edward Wadsworth.

It’s an exciting year ahead for Bright and its artists with the showcasing of new talent, a range of illustrated titles being released and Bright’s 10 year Anniversary!

One of our most successful artist’s books is available now to buy – Sue Hendra’s’ No Bott, ’ published by Simon & Schuster. This wonderful story tells the tale of Bernard the Robot who loses his bottom on the park swing, and sets off to find it. Every time he gets close, it disappears again! Bird was using it as a nest, but it was too heavy; Bear used it in his drum kit, but it was too tinny; the Squirrels built sandcastles with it…and now it looks as if they’re sailing away in it. Will Bernard EVER get his bottom back?!

Also, one of Bright’s original Author/ Illustrators Rebecca Elliott, who has been represented by Bright since the early stages of her career and has a string of successes behind her – Rebecca has been published by Bloomsbury, Lion and Macmillan already, is now ‘revealing’ an amazing new hilarious tale of Naked Trevor, published by Templar this month !!
