    Sarah Maycock – Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard (London)

    Occupying the 34th to 52nd floors of architect Renzo Piano’s iconic Shard building, clients don’t get much more glamorous than the Shangri-La Hotel London. As relative newcomers to the neighbourhood, the owners of the luxury hotel wanted to create a book that celebrates all of the best things in SE1.

    Sarah Maycock was tasked with creating the centre piece to the book. A double page map detailing all of the star attractions surrounding The Shard, from Shakespeare’s Globe theatre to the wine lovers paradise Vinopolis. Each building drawn separately in Sarah’s lovely hand rendered style and then added to the map.

    Art direction by our good friends at Wordsearch.

    The Household Spirit

    Adorning the front of the new Jonathan Cape novel titled ‘The Household Spirit’ is none other than HF’s Paul Blow.

    Paul’s strong colour palettes and infamous mark making were what got the attention of Random House who were looking to employ these techniques to formally introduce us to two characters called Howie Jeffries and Emily Phane. The pair live side by side in adjoining houses but without any contact with each other for decades, it’s only when tragedy trikes that they are brought together to face a number of their issues. In doing so they learn about fishing, true love, bad art, fatherhood, grandfatherhood, psychedelic drugs, loss and what it means to be happy.

    Sounds like quite the journey!

    The Adventure of Arrack

    If you didn’t know, Ceylon Arrack is a traditional Sri Lankan spirit distilled from the sap of the coconut flower. The company had a story to tell of its historic past and how the company came to be today, so commissioned Winkreative to create a book for them. In-turn, Winkreative commissioned Jonathan Burton to create a series of illustrations for the book, which included a wide variety of subject matter from the island of Sri Lanka and the Rockland Distillery.
