Illustrator_Leanne Shapton

18 Jul
The taste for images, the talent to talk about things and a creative idea snob about love. Leanne Shapton is an illustrator, writer and designer. A Canadian who lives in the West Village of Manhattan, who has signed great book covers for Penguin, Simon& Schuster and John Murray.

(like this one…Italian cats….)

Today, Leanne is an independent art director and publisher and has a non-profit publishing house specialized in art  books (J&L Books) in NY.

Her first two books “Toronto”,

and  Was she pretty?” are a mix of graphics, writing and colourful pages.

With her latest book, Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris including Books, Street Fashion and Jewelryshe has decided to talk about things, like auction artifacts with 300 still lives that tell about a love story.

Book: My wonderful World of Fashion: A book for drawing, creating and dreaming

13 Jul

 

 

Nina Chakrabarti is an illustrator based in London who created her own interactive colouring book for fashionists of all ages with Lawrence King Publishing, with sophisticated drawings that are a pity to colour.

Dedicated to the growing  trend setters this book is the most fashionable of books to colour in circulation. YOu can have fun reinventing jackets, purses, hats, but its also a how-to manual with the ABC’s of the walkways of fashion. You even have a section called “How to do it yourself”, if you want to become a fashion designer and if you want to transform a dress into a t-shirt or make a great jacket.
