Black Dragon Press are delighted to welcome Vienna-based award-winning illustrator Peter Diamond to their roster with this pair of downright beautiful alternative book covers for Richard Adams’ classic “Watership Down”, produced under license from Nepenthe Productions.
As well as being a hugely talented illustrator Peter teaches drawing at the illustration academy Illuskills, is currently serving as Secretary of the European Illustrators' Forum, and works with Illustria - the society of Austrian illustrators-. His work has been exhibited in Berlin, New York, Vienna, Adelaide and Halifax, and has received awards from the Society of Illustrators, Illustrative Berlin, Spectrum and more. Black Dragon Press love above all Peter's use of color and deft organic line work and they look forward to more prints from him in future.
The release consists of two editions: the Ni-Frith (Sun Regular) version is a 9 color 18x35 screenprint from an edition of 150 and is available now from the Black Dragon Press shop.
The Fu Inlé (Moon Variant) version is a 9 color 18x35 screenprint with metallics from an edition of only 50. As it is a low run these will go on sale this Thursday March 12th at 3pm GMT (11am EDT) so that everyone gets a shot at it.
