Product story

Cressida Bell on collaborating with the RA:

"The Royal Academy gave me a brief to find inspiration in the RA archives – and I was delighted to find a large collection of Walter Crane books and prints in their library. I loved Walter Crane books as a child (my mother has a good collection) so I was happy to spend an afternoon poring over them.

I made a selection of my favourites which included an end-paper with stylised clouds and sunrises. This was the starting point for my design. Birds are a common theme in many of Crane's illustrations so I used a selection of them to superimpose on the clouds. I first had to make an all-over design from the clouds and put that into repeat (not an easy process) and then I drew and refined 12 separate birds. These were then arranged so as to look like a flock of birds swooping and diving amongst the stars and clouds."
