Book Of Bones

I worked together with graphic designer Meagan Bennett at Phaidon to put together this illustrated kids book, conceived & written by children’s author Gabrielle Balkan.

The book looks at ten animals, each with a record-breaking bone; whether it be the longest, shortest, heaviest, spikiest, etc.

In a ‘guess which animal’ format, the first spread for each animal showed only the skeleton, with relatable facts to put it in perspective. On the reveal spread, the animal was illustrated (in the same pose) in full colour in it’s environment.
