Mark Boardman – Royal Botanical Gardens Kew

We’re absolutely thrilled to share this beautiful series of illustrations created by Mark Boardman to accompany the new Travel The World At Kew Exhibition, which is open now in their global garden. Following three months of closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Kew Gardens has reopened and is showcasing its uniquely diverse landscape by presenting an exhibition of words and images linked specifically to areas within their gardens, reconnecting visitors with nature and satisfying their frustrated wanderlust.


Tasked with bringing the specially commissioned poetry and prose to life, Mark’s illustrations were inspired by the Royal Botanic Garden's selection of worldwide plants and trees, transporting visitors on a journey to each country. 



Talking about his contribution to the exhibition, Mark has described his pleasure at working on this inspiring project, “I felt so fortunate to have this commission to focus on during lock down. Not only did it allow me to immerse myself in researching the many botanic wonders at Kew, it gave me the opportunity to feel like I was escaping on my own global adventure.” To see more of Mark’s work, click here.

Doug John Miller / Laurence King

Doug John Miller was commissioned by Laurence King to create the artwork for ‘The World of Sherlock Holmes’, a complex and storied jigsaw puzzle which captures the world of the famous detective.

The plan for the puzzle was authored by Nicholas Utechin, the official historian of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London. Following his brief, Doug created a bustling cityscape featuring Sherlock Holmes’ mysteries, locations, characters and clues.

Doug’s artwork displays his particular eye for architectural detail and talent for composing intricately detailed scenes which draw the viewer in with the multiple strands of stories being told.

Set off for outer space with Joe Lillington’s Rocket Boy

Prepare for the adventure of a lifetime as we launch Rocket Boy on his inaugural mission to Mars. Rocket Boy written by Little Tiger Press editor Katie Jennings and illustrated by Joe Lillington forms part of the incredibly successful Stripes illustrated colour fiction series.

There are action-packed illustrations on every spread! This brilliant 96 page-turner encapsulates the wonder and limitless nature of a child's imagination as space enthusiast Callum sets about making his very own Rocket from recycled materials in order to embark on an implausible mission to Mars.

Interesting space facts are cleverly woven into the story to make this educational as well as a fun-filled pacy read for young readers. Joe has created a series of brilliantly accessible and engaging illustrations, packed with detail for readers to explore using a sophisticated pallet and inventive use of page space to keep them gripped. We think Rocket Boy will have 'leap-off-the-shelf' appeal to a wide range of budding young astronauts and newly emerging independent readers. A book which would make a welcome addition to schools and libraries too!

Rocket Boy publishes on the 6th August - Grab a copy HERE and perhaps start making your own intergalactic space rocket!
