Oscar Wilde Murders
Oscar Wilde Murders book jacket artwork commissions for John Murray publishing, written by British Broadcaster and ex-MP Gyles Brandreth. Each Book Oscar Wilde Murders cover is designed with an individual style, I illustrate a patterned border on the top edge and bottom edge of the book cover jacket. I then illustrate key elements from the story which I illustrate onto the front of the book jacket covers. The most dominant feature is, of course, Oscar Wilde, on the front cover, accompanied by the key illustration taken from the title of each of the stories.
Gyles Brandreth is a writer, performer, former MP and government whip his career has ranged from presenting Have I Got News For You. Gyle’s is currently a reporter with The One Show on BBC1 and a regular on Radio 4’s Just a Minute, his popular Victorian detective stories – The Oscar Wilde Murder Mysteries – are being published in nineteen countries around the world and are currently in development for TV as well. All six books in the series, Oscar Wilde and the Candlelight Murders, Oscar Wilde and the Ring of Death, Oscar Wilde and the Dead Man’s Smile, Oscar Wilde and the Nest of Vipers, Oscar Wilde and the Vatican Murders and Oscar Wilde and the Murders at Reading Gaol, have been commissioned book jackets by John Murray Publishing, which I have had the pleasure to work on.
