Michael Palin Illustrations / The Red Dress

The Red Dress have been commissioned for a second time to create artworks for actor, comedian, writer and public speaker Michael Palin. This time for cover artwork for his new book ‘Into Iraq’, which is in an insight into the history and culture of the country after his trip there in March 2022.

Previously The Red Dress illustrated the cover art for his ‘North Korea Journal’ book, which documented the diaries and accounts of his time in the secretive country.

Lucy Davey illustrates walking guides of Scotland for Pocket Mountains Ltd.

Lucy Davey has illustrated the perfect walking holiday essential, handy pocket guides for 4 locations across Scotland, published by Pocket Mountains Ltd.

With a look inspired by vintage travel posters, Lucy has captured specific landmarks relevant to the four locations (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Sterling and Falkirk), as well as creating around 30 inside illustrations for each book, “It was a dream brief in many ways – I loved learning about all these landmarks of Scotland and really enjoyed adding the nature and wildlife elements to the images.”

Each book has a distinct colour palette which Lucy uses to great effect throughout, making them a wonderfully visually satisfying set;

“The printed books are so cute and satisfying, I’m so pleased with how they turned out!
