Nobrow & Flying Eye’s spring is ready to shine!

Nobrow is an award winning visual publishing company headquartered in London – established by Sam Arthur and Alex Spiro. Check it out!!!

If you love children’s books – and I’m assuming you do if you read my blog – than you know that finding the balance between children’s stories and cool illustrations is not easy.  That is why I am constantly surprised by Nobrow and Flying Eye’s books for kids.  Each book almost looks like a work of art you could see at the upper level of the Blanton Museum of Art.   These are not books that you download and save to your hard-drive; they are books that you can touch and store with delicacy because they are heirloom quality.  New books have always been like little treasures to me and I decided to take an entire post to tell you about my favorite Nobrow & Flying Eye’s books just released for springBe still, my book-loving heart!

  • Locomotion (ISBN: 978-1910620-11-3)

The beautiful concertina book folds out to a stunning 54 inch panorama detailing the history of trains and locomotives from the very first railroads and machines to sustainability in the twenty-first century and beyond! A brilliant wraparound cover details the notable benchmarks in the history and mythology of trains.

Golden Cosmos was set up in 2010 as a collaborative moniker for German artistic couple Daniel Doltz and Doris Freigofas. Their deep knowledge of traditional printmaking techniques and experiences in self-publishing that have won them widespread critical acclaim in illustration circles made them the perfect choice for our trademark concertina series. Their bold use of color and adeptness for shape and form recall the bold patterns and geometry of early Russian constructivism, with a nod to mid-century French commercial art. There is no doubt that this will be a beauty!
