These images were created for a new, illustrated edition of William Golding’s Lord of The Flies. The binding for the front cover is a single colour lithograph on red book cloth with white letterpressed accents. The interior images are four colour offset. Using contemporary illustration to accompany a much loved classic was an exciting challenge, made more so by the active involvement of the Golding Estate. Lord of The Flies is one of my favourite novels, and in many regards this opportunity was a true dream job.
