I am Coralie Bickford-Smith and here is a bit about myself:
I graduated from Reading University after studying Typography and Graphic Communication. I currently work in-house at Penguin Books. Amazingly my book covers have been recognised by the AIGA (NY) and D&AD (UK) and have featured in a numerous international magazines and newspapers including The New York Times, Vogue and The Guardian. The work I did with Penguin Classics on the clothbound series attracted worldwide attention and harks back to the world of Victorian bindings and a golden age of book binding.
I wrote and illustrated my own book The Fox and The Star, which was published by Penguin in August 2015.
My second book The Worm and the Bird was published by Penguin in August 2017.
I have been commissioned by a wide range of clients including The New York Times, Fortnum & Mason, Waterstones, Corriere Della Sera, Diageo and Arts Council England.
In 2017 I was awarded an Honourary Doctor of Letters by Reading University.
