BfK 171 July 2008
This issue’s cover illustration by James Mayhew is from Katie and the British Artists. James Mayhew discusses his work on page 3. Thanks to Orchard Books for their help with this July cover.
Because the landscape format of the Katie books is entirely at odds with the A4 portrait format of the magazine, a composite image has been assembled. The pastiche of Constable’s Cornfield is in fact just a section of an illustration, taken from a much larger double page spread from within the book. A frame has been added to complete the effect.
