I recently recieved my copies of Beowulf, translated by Seamus Heaney, which I illustrated for The Folio Society. It’s a beautiful book, of which I’m extremely proud. It’s quarter bound in leather, with a canvas cover blocked in gold with my Anglo Saxon-style dragon and knotwork design, gilded on the top page edge and presented in a gold-coloured slipcase that’s also printed with my design. In keeping with the heavily illustrated ‘illuminated’ manuscripts of the Anglo-Saxon period (like the Lindisfarne Gospels) Beowulf is illustrated with a footer to half-page image or decorative border on every page. Sumptuous!
