M. K. Gandhi – An autobiography
The book cover I illustrated for the Folio Society is out at last! I made the portrait of Gandhi using linocut to create two layers which were scanned and then blocked onto the canvas of the book. The designer Sheri Gee took a detail from the image to use on the spine and I love the choice of font and the slipcase with the gentle curve which echoes my design.
To get hold of a copy you have to join the Folio Society but they have loads of beautifully designed and bound books, including Kafka’s Metamorphosis illustrated by Bill Bragg and Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children illustrated by Anna Bhushan, both of whom I count as friends.
