At last, at long last! I have come to the end of my secret project- for those who don’t know, I’ve been working on a commission for the Folio Society, illustrating Ford Madox Ford’s classic teratology Parade’s End. And as of yesterday I have finally come to the end of the whole thing. It’s been almost exactly six months since I first sat down to read the books and now the last linocut has been printed and they’ve all been posted off.
Here is a new, very silly version of one of the first illustrations (which I showed on my blog ages ago) in celebration of being finished. The book itself won’t be out until February, but I’ll speak to them and see if I can show off the illustrations before the book is released. If not, you’ll just have to wait and see.
I’m now going to go and bathe in a giant tub full of champagne.
