We're delighted to release the mini-print series The Lilypad Seven by Conor Nolan. Reflecting Conor’s love for all things Miyazaki and Samurai culture, he has created this fun series of characters, each with their own distinctive personality, with plans to develop them into a full blown universe. Conor has been teasing these for a little while now and we knew we had to turn them into prints as soon as we laid our eyes on them. We’re delighted to help him bring them to life on lush Bamboo paper and we can’t wait to see how the project develops. Watch this space!The Lilypad Seven are now on sale from our shop
We’re delighted to announce the second release in Nicolas Delort’s Classical Series. Inspired by three quintessential musical pieces from the Baroque, Romantic and Post-Romantic eras, illustrator Nicolas Delort has taken on the challenge of bringing to life J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations, Franz Schubert’s Die Winterreise and Sergei Rachmaninoff’s The Isle of the Dead in his unmistakable scratchboard style. The second installment is Delort’s personal interpretation of Schubert’s Winterreise.
The release will consist of two editions. The main edition is printed with black ink on white paper and sealed with a layer of varnish from an edition of 136. The variant edition is printed with metallic silver ink on ultra black paper from an edition of 50.Winterreise is on sale now from our shop
Unrelentlessy dark and dreary, Winterreise (Winter Journey) is nonetheless one of Schubert's most famous and acclaimed song cycles. Taking us on a journey through the snow-covered landscapes of 19th century Germany, the composer explores a man's decaying relationship with the world and the people around him through haunting melodies. My artwork is inspired by the cycle as a whole but focuses more particularly on one song, Die Krähe (The Crow), showcasing this dark omen looming over the desperate traveler. Nicolas Delort
