there will never be a 'new black'
Since 2011, the Folio Society has been teaming up with House of Illustration to bring you an annual competition like no other.
Created to promote new talent in illustration, this competition gives anyone and everyone (18 yrs and older) the chance to illustrate a book cover and it’s illustrations within, regardless of their background or education. This year, the chosen book is a compilation of Ghost Stories. It sounds like we’re making this up right? Independent art, books, ghost stories… how is this even real?
So, from the hundreds of submissions entered, House of Illustration just released the 26 artists still in the running. You can see all 26 submissions HERE but we thought we would highlight a few of our favorites.
The winner of the competition and five runners-up will be announced on the 19th of February, and don’t worry, we’ll post them here.
