Festival Art

Creatively interpreting the festival

Each year we commission an artist or illustrator to produce a series of works to interpret the book festival as they see it.

In 2023 we were delighted to be working with illustrator and calligrapher Jill Calder to bring a refreshing new look to celebrate the festival’s 20th year, and her amazing work could be found in our programme, on posters and across all our digital and social media postings.

Find out more about Jill and her work at her website and on Instagram.
