15 years collaboration with Osprey Publishing.
09/02/17Been having a tidy up recently and came across the very first book I was commissioned to work on by Osprey Publishing. Looking through it I noticed it was published in 2002 so I guess this is our 15th anniversary together!
The book is Viking Longship, in the New Vanguard series.
I remember there was a lot of accuracy and detail required, but Kieth Durham the author was on hand to guide me through all the strakes, shroud- pins and the like.
Here's a detailed cut-away illustration from the book of an 11th Century knarr (cargo ship).
I'll post a contrasting image from the most recently published book to feature some of my work on my Facebook page in the next day or two.
Here's to another 15 years!
