Mark Edwards

Mark Edwards is an artist living and working deep in the Scottish Highlands, a modern master in a very British form of surrealism.

Over the years he has illustrated literally hundreds of book covers for authors such as Kingsley Amis, Beryl Bainbridge, Sue Townsend, Michael Morpurgo (including War Horse), Philip Pullman and the bard himself, William Shakespeare. Picture books such as ‘The Sand Children’ by Joyce Dunbar and ‘Narnia Chronology’ by CS Lewis (published in May 08) have been brought to life by Mark’s illustrations. Mark’s varied illustration techniques have been analysed, alongside other international artists in ‘The New Guide to Illustration’ (Phaidon Press 1990).
