I have just finished working on the second title in this series. The first, exceeded all initial sales expectations and debuted at number 8 in all book top new releases, alongside JK Rowling and Phillip Pullman to name a few!
Because there is so much detail in the flowers and the colours are subtle, I opted for simplicity in the text and a uniform grid of step images, softened by the occasional use of an elegant monoline script. I kept any additional colour to a minimum, using an occasional soft green or pink for a box out or background where required for clarity of instruction.
For the beautiful styled and step images, the US based author worked directly with a local photographer I commissioned. I provided remote art direction via a detailed brief and lots of calls and late night emails and this worked really well.
