A big congratulations to The Gentle Author of the Spitalfields Life blog who has had his blog posts published into this beautiful book!!
I was very touched to be asked to do the front cover especially something quite unusual as these Staffordshire dogs.
I've also done the little illustrations at the beginning of each chapter and there's a story about me as someone who works in the area.
Spitalfields is an area in East London and this book tells the stories of all sorts of people living in and around Spitalfields, from Tailors to Graffiti artists and everyone's favourite bag merchant Paul Gardner!!
The beautiful end papers are by Mark Hearld.
This is publication day for The Gentle Author so I'm sure he is very happy!! You can get a copy now from his blog here.
