New LaB Idea - Louise Anglicas! May 02 2019

Meet the artists

We are excited to announce we have a new LaB idea from the ever talented artist Louise Anglicas, Atlas of the World! Written and illustrated by the artist herself, Louise was assisted by our sister studio Collaborate and we have to say the finished product is delightful! 

Atlas of the World by Louise Anglicas takes you on a beautiful, decorative trip around the world. Focusing on traditional cultures and costumes, of all ages, this book is perfect for readers, with a love of pretty pictures and lots of detail 

Louise Anglicas started her career working as an in-house designer for a local long established ceramic manufacturer. Being established as a freelancer designer for many years since, and after having had two daughters, Louise has ventured into different areas of design, where her love of pattern and design has been applied anew. 

From greeting cards, to wall art, to stationery and children books, it is a career that is forever rewarding and challenging, and she feels very lucky to be able to do this for a living! With all this in mind, it’s no surprise she made the jump into developing her own story ideas - particular one like Atlas of the World, which highlights her many talents.

Louise’s colourful, exciting maps and elaborately dressed characters make her an ideal match for a project like this, especially for introducing readers aged 0-5 to a bit more of the world around them! Want to know more about this story idea? Don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our lovely illustration agents for more information. If you’d like to see more of Louise’s work as well (and why wouldn’t you!) you can view more on her online Advocate portfolio. To see more about what went into the process of creating Atlas of the World, scroll through the images above. Additionally Louise also developed the heartwarming story idea Esme, which centres around a shy elephant who learns to come out of her shell.

If you found the concept of story ideas by our artists intriguing as well, we would absolutely love to set up a time to go through them with you - get in touch with our agents today for an appointment.
