The Italian Job

Alan Baker gets the royal treatment form an Italian publishing client. Having tted at the Bologna book fair, start up company Filipo woo Brighton based Alan. He received an all expenses paid trip out to Turin to talk about working together on a series of fantasy teen titles. In his own words he was treated like an illustration guru, over restaurant tables given folios to look through form other Italian illustrators, so that the 'master' could advise on how they could improve. For a short while Alan thought he had died and gone to illustration heaven!

Though the client has turned out to be quite exacting and the budget for book covers not in the same league as their expenses kitty!! It's still makes the job a sunnier experience all round.
