I Spy 2020

I Spy In Hospital News Chronicle.jpg

Well 2019 didn’t pan out quite like we’d planned!  With both Simon and Ann having had time in hospital, one after the other, current book projects had to be put on hold for some considerable time. However with the New Year, Easy On The Eye Books are starting to get moving once again and the titles which got held up are now being prepared for publication.  We anticipate that the Fire In The Sky book will be first, this is now into the final photo clearing phase, with text proofed and the book laid out. This book has become much bigger than originally planned (around 700 images in total!) so will have around 260 pages now.  This will be quickly followed by the Boom Boom Blues photo book, and then we’ll tackle the next two titles. Goodness knows how brexit will affect things this year but we’ll do our best (we print in mainland Europe, so have been dreading this). Anyhow, expect more page spreads and other updates in the coming weeks. Our thanks to everyone for their patience.

The illustration above is from the popular I Spy pocket books which were a publishing phenomena during the 1950s and 1960s.  These are a big favourite with Simon and he has compiled a few pages devoted to them on his design site – check the link above.
