the chateau children’s book – illustration and design


During the first lockdown of 2020, apart from everything else my partner Sophie Baker and I worked with Angel Strawbridge to produce a personalised children’s book called Adverntures at the Chateau.

As ever we worked closely with Angel on all aspects of the design before painting up all 36 pages by hand in watercolour.

The book is personalisable and with 12 possible character choices each page needed to be carefully designed to allow for the many variations to work seemlessly during the ordering process.

The result is a very beautiful book full of original artwork that we are very proud of, not least because we managed to pul it off despite the many Covid related difficulties that came up.
