James Nunn - Designer

Bath, United Kingdom

Designer and illustrator of books inside and out. Printmaking, ink drawing, digital image-making and photographic and typographic design

Overview

I'm a freelance designer and illustrator of books inside and out. I have been designing mostly covers for over 15 years. In the last 6 years I have been illustrating whole books and overseeing the design from cover the cover. Before I was a designer I was a bookseller and with such long experience in the trade I pride myself not only on the quality and originality of my work but also on how it stands up to the competition. I am also the illustrator and creator of The Corbyn Colouring Book and The Tour de France Colouring Book, published by Old Street Publishing and Penguin Yellow Jersey.
