Beth Izatt
The Mailman's Marvellous Mail

Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
With this book I want to share a story of how simple acts of kindness can go a long way, something I believe to be more relevant than ever. Each character in the book receives a thank you note from the Mailman for all the support (and cups of tea!) they have given him over a tough time. I also wanted to create a book that could be given as a sign of thanks to someone by the reader.

How was the illustration used:
The book was used in my individual portfolio to showcase my illustrations.

How did you make this work:
The illustrations were made as digital collages through textures, made by myself, with materials such as pencil and found ephemera. The images were then composed on Photoshop with the textures as well as additional analogue layers, created with a light-box. The book was then moved to Indesign were I worked out the measurements for the book before it was printed and folded together.
