Bill Sanderson, who studied Illustration and Graphic Design from 1966 at the West of England College of Art, first taught art at a school in London while establishing his freelance work. His early commissions were editorial, for The Times, Time Out and the Radio Times. In the late 1970s he added advertising and publishing to his portfolio. He is part of a talented generation that matured in the 1970s and has carried on working in much the same way to the present.
There is a generous selection of his work on this website that shows the range and expertise of this talented artist. He won many awards for book cover design and his book work includes a series of Penguin covers for the novels of Anthony Burgess in the 1980s, Harry Harrison and Felix Dennis. His art can also be seen in the latest Tolkein; The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun.
The work shown here is a selection from his recent revamps for the Puffin Classics series.
