About the Maker
Atlantic Press is run by illustrators and educators and aims to publish innovative picture books which display the highest literary and visual standards. In so doing, Atlantic Press wants to encourage illustration to be a developing practice and not just a repetitive commodity. An independent press, Atlantic Press publishes limited edition first books by authorial illustrators.
Their rare and collectible books present imaginative ideas or tell intriguing stories, and are often illustrated for an adult audience, or designed to appeal to an audience of all ages. Associated with the Masters course in authorial illustration at Falmouth University, Atlantic Press seeks to promote new authorial illustration talent, as well as recognising existing practitioners in the illustration field. "At Atlantic Press, we create works of graphic literature which respect the illustrator’s personal voice: their ideas, their pictures and their words. We call this ‘authorial illustration’."
