From a galaxy far, far away to a beautifully-illustrated book near you…. this was definitely one of those projects that was difficult to keep a secret, especially as it began unfolding in such a magnificent way. This year, we managed to land our very own resident Star Wars fantastic Tim McDonagh the brief of his dreams: to illustrate an entire Star Wars book.
Neal Layton's marvellous new book, The Invincible Tony Spears is out now! This is the first in a new series that Neal has been working on for nearly 3 years, the culmination of a life long interest in space exploration and science fiction.
Frances Castle's illustrations for Templar's Pop-Out, Know-it-All Atlas and Space series put the fun back into facts.
This surreal montage illustration is by Andre Bergamin for a Victor Birgiss EP.
Andre was given the tracks to listen to and interpret in his own impressive way for this forthcoming record on the Love Potion label. And with a couple of keywords to keep in his mind; animals and Space, Andre went on to create this juxtaposed image for the cover artwork.

Congratulations to Neal Layton whose book, The Story of Stars, has won the SLA Information Book Award for the under 7's category. The judges said that his book is… "a superb simple and straightforward book which informs through being totally entertaining: with working pop-ups, humour and an imaginative progression - it is a totally engaging delight."
Neal's interest in life, the universe and everything has led to an amazing amount of research and his collaboration with paper engineer, Richard Ferguson has created a unique, child friendly view of the stars, solar systems and galaxies. Neal poses and answers the big questions that you might ask when you look up at the night sky full of stars and wonder: "what are they and where are they?". This book is the third in the series, published by Hodder Children's Books.
