We'd like to thank all our customers who have supported our move into periodic publication by subscribing to the first four issues of Illustrators Quarterly or by ordering the first issue. Similarly it's been very gratifying to hear all the positive comments and receive pre-orders for our next book The Art of Denis McLoughlin . Your support is very important to us and we appreciate the commitment given the current economic climate. There is of course still time to subscribe and take advantage of our free UK postage offer. We've kept the international rates as low as possible too despite the recent Royal Mail price hike. If you like to support us by paying now rather than on publication just say so in the comments section of your order, or use PayPal, otherwise credit/debit cards will only be charged once we are ready to ship your order.
And so to the update...
The digital proofs are now at the printers being given the once over. Shortly we will get a print out which will be our last chance to discover any howlers. I say this as one of five people who's proof read the Quarterly and the book so far. The observant amongst you will have noticed that we recently changed the cover for Illustrators #1. The new cover has more, shall we say va-va-voom and I think a wonderful noir feel redolent of the classic crime films of the 1940s and '50s.
I'll leave you with a sample of the stunning artwork that accompanies the Ian Kennedy
and a couple of my favourite McLoughlin covers for the T.V. Boardman books.
Don't forget to come back soon for more progress reports and sneak previews.
