Design and illustration for the self publishing author

Richard Deverell is the ideal choice of illustrator for a self publishing author. The client wanted to produce a few printed and bound copies of a beautifully written and highly amusing early years autobiography of her late father on the occasion of her wedding. These were to be presented as special gifts for her mother and other relatives.

Richard passed the management of this project to his design department. The book was designed, a brief prepared, and Richard produced pictures loosely in the style of Ernest Sheppard’s early illustrations for the stories of Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh, books that our client’s father had read to her as a child.

The budget allowed for a colour cover and six line illustrations within the text, and the client and her family were delighted with the result.
