The Illustrated Hard Times: this is where the project started. Nick was looking for a way of sharing his enthusiasm for the novel and, as an illustrator, this is his answer. The 250 page hardback book includes 50 full-page, full colour illustrations (prepared as gouache and line paintings) which act as chapter headings. These illustrations are also the basis for the animated video, which is under preparation this year.

The book is available from amazon or directly from this website at £35 including VAT. Simply contact:
