I was commissioned last autumn by The Folio Society, a regular client, to produce 6 colour plates and a cover for their new edition of ‘The Nursery Rhyme Book’, edited by Andrew Lang (who also edited the Rainbow Fairy Book series). I had already illustrated ‘The Pink Fairy Book’ for them in 2007, so they wanted me to create these illustrations in the same style, in etching and aquatint. I had great fun coming up with new illustrations for some very well-known rhymes, and I hope I have brought my own style to them. The book also includes over 100 black and white images and endpapers by the original 19th century illustrator, (L.Leslie Brooke) so it is a combination of old and new. It has just been published!
