Review by Laura Stephens:

Vibrant pictures, fun activities, and beautiful stickers make up this book for kids. My grandchildren loved looking for the little mouse on each page. There are explanations about each place and why it is smelly. Not all the smells are bad, some are quite good.

On the Beat: During the Great War 1914 -1918

 

Bishop’s Stortford Museum, part of the Rhodes Birthplace trust and Middlesex University

Published: 2014

ISBN: 9780957107229

 

'The Bishop's Stortford Museum in Hertfordshire collaborated with students from Middlesex University's Illustration course to pay tribute to the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War. In this unique collaboration – produced in partnership with Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund – eight Illustration students and graduates were invited to create drawings inspired by rare police records documenting the experiences of Hertfordshire policemen during the War. The project involved exhibitions at Bishop's Stortford Museum and Middlesex University, and caught the attention of major institutions such as the BBC and the Times newspaper receiving a good press coverage from both. A live brief with tough and challenging material to work from, it has demanded respect and integrity due to its subject matter and the fact that these are original police records relating to real people suffering the traumas of the First World War.’

Sancti Clandestini: Undercover Saints

 

World Wood Publishing

Published: 2012

ISBN: 9781908742131

 

‘There are official Patron Saints of wax-melters, truss makers, lumberjacks, Florentine cheese merchants and disappointing children. This book proposes some alternative, imaginary saints, including the Patron Saints of liars, looters, rank outsiders, compulsive hoarders, old dogs and infidel girls. These undercover Patron Saints are sumptuously illustrated by the staff and students of Middlesex University’s Illustration course, from famous and established artists to emerging talents.’

 

Review by Philip Gross:

If the proof of a poem is in the richness of response it provokes, the illustrations here are that response made visible - a testimony to the subtle layers in this tender but incisive poetry. They are also delights in themselves.'

 

'To Kremena,

Thank you for your extraordinary illustration: breathtaking.

Maggie, 2012'
