Ruth Palmer has completed some very pleasant covers and spreads for Blackbear the Pirate. Commissioned by the author Steve Buckley, Ruth is now working on her third book in the series. The books follow a pirate bear and crew who are 'named after actual pirates from what historians call the Golden Age of Piracy' with Blackbear based on the famous Blackbeard. Ruth's warm painterly illustrations give the books a traditional classic feel.
