British Printmakers create beautiful work with their designs for book covers.

Book publishers Faber & Faber recently published their new collection of poetry books based on some of Faber's best loved poets. The books each feature a book cover and end papers designed by a British Printmaker. The senior designer at Faber & Faber is, I am pleased to say, very fond of printmaking and she has really shown how such commissions can be so successful. This is a super commission for the printmakers and shows the superb work being made at the moment by printmakers here. The books are beautiful.

You can read about how the books were designed and see the full collection on the Faber blog at;

The printmakers involved in the project are;
Charles Shearer, Sarah Young, Michael Kirkman, Ed Kluz, Jonathan Gibbs and Peter Clayton.

You can see original prints by several of these printmakers at the Emma Mason Gallery in Eastbourne and on their website;
Emma Mason will also be exhibiting work by British printmakers at the Palace Art Fair in October.
