Yann Legendre / The Anglo-Saxons / The Folio Society

Earlier this year, Yann Legendre was commissioned by The Folio Society to create the ornate binding, cover and frontispiece for James Campbell’s 'The Anglo-Saxons’. This beautiful edition of Campbell's seminal text is comprised of 2 volumes – Campbell’s original pictorial text, and an accompanying book of photos. For the bindings, Yann recreated the visage of the iconic Anglo Saxon helmet and a traditional knotted snake design, commonly featured on an Anglo Saxon buckle. He balanced the requirements of producing a historically accurate rendition of these well-known objects with creating bespoke illustrative pieces that feature his stylistic touches and flairs, bringing out lively details and decorative moments. His bold designs leap across the books' surfaces, contrasting with the moss and blood-red of the binding cloth. The result is a fascinating and beautiful package which complements and celebrates the titles’ status. The strength of the book's aesthetics were recognised by the BBD&PA...

Florian Schommer / Penguin Press

Florian Schommer was commissioned by Penguin Press to create artwork for ‘Day of the Oprichnik’ and ‘The Blizzard’, two novels by contemporary Russian writer Vladimir Sorokin, published as Penguin Modern Classics in November 2018. The speculative and often dark nature of both novels was the perfect foil for Florian’s imagination.

Corey Brickley / The Folio Book of Horror Stories

Corey Brickley was commissioned by The Folio Society to illustrate the binding and 6 internal illustrations for ‘The Folio Book of Horror Stories’, released as part of their Autumn 2018 collection. Corey’s brooding, atmospheric style with its particular noir nuances made him the perfect choice to illustrate the stories collected within this anthology, ranging from classic to contemporary. Corey had to navigate the balance between depicting physical embodiments of supernatural phenomena with the more suggestive elements of horror that are intangible, dwelling in the psyche. The result is this series of beautiful expressive images that transport the reader into terrifying fictional worlds. See more of Corey Brickley’s portfolio on the Debut Art website here: https://www.debutart.com/artist/corey-brickley.

Matt Herring / Timeout: 50 Years, 50 Covers.

Of 2,500 Timeout covers published since 1968, Matt Herring’s Queen’s Diamond Jubilee cover makes the top 50 in this new exhibition at the London Museum of Brands, along side artists such as Banksy and Tracey Emin. A new book published by Unicorn accompanies the exhibition. ’Peter Blake was originally supposed to design a cover for Queen Elizabeth’s diamond Jubilee,’ explains art editor Anthony Huggins. ‘He did it, but it wasn’t quite right. So we sent his to design to our subscribers and commissioned illustrator Matt Herring to do this alternative, Sex Pistols-inspired version. It was a bit of a dry subject, so - in Time Out style - we wanted to do something that didn’t take itself too seriously!’ Did you know that Time Out is turning 50? It’s true: the first issue, put together by our founder Tony Elliott on his kitchen table, was published in August 1968. And we’re not the types to let a big birthday go uncelebrated. To mark half a century of bringing you the best of London, we’ve...
