Brief Lives

MAY 26, 2016

Last year I had the pleasure of illustrating a book for The Folio Society, 'John Aubrey's Brief Lives'.

The book compiles over 400 brief, witty and gossipy biographies of 16th and 17th century British thinkers, scientists, noblemen and statesmen. I created 13 b/w illustrations of varying sizes plus 4 full pg. color plates. Many thanks to AD Sheri Gee.

Below are some of the illustrations. More on the book can be found here
