The Silver spoon in German

The Silver Spoon for children is now available in German, bringing the total number of available languages to 8 (Spanish, French, Danish, Dutch, Russian, English and Japanese!). That's an awful lot of re-writing... It's actually been out a while now and is published by Edel in collaboration with Phaidon. Here's the cover and a few of the spreads.

Eleanor & Park

I was pleased to hear that a book I did the cover for, 'Eleanor and Park' by Rainbow Rowell recently made it on to the New York Times bestseller list! It's still selling well and is currently at number 12 on the Young Adult list. I've now got my copy and looking forward to giving it a read, it's had some great reviews!

Grafici Mobili exhibition

I was recently asked by Corraini studio and 121 bookshop to take part in an exhibition as part of design week in Milan. Grafici Mobili is a poster exhibition in which Graphic designers and artists re-interpret designer objects or pieces of furniture graphically. My chosen object was the 'ball clock', designed by George Nelson in 1948. I chose to re-invent it as a solar system, with the sun in the middle and the planets surrounding it. I had to include several dwarf planets as well to get the number up to 12! Here is the inspirational clock and finished poster.
The exhibition opened yesterday and runs until May 5th.
