Book Of Flight

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 particularly interesting method of flying. Interestingly, only four out of the ten animals are birds.

In a ‘guess which animal’ format, the first spread for each animal is shown in a blueprint style, to detail the special attributes of how they fly. On the reveal spread, the animal was illustrated (in the same pose) in full colour in it’s environment.
