Sometimes just the one word is sufficient – wow! Now I’ve got that out of the way let me expand on these sentiments a little. Joanna Neborsky is an illustrator inspired by mid-20th Century illustration who alongside working for a client list that spans HarperCollins, Straus & Giroux and The New York Times, has created a visual representation of Flaubert’s belongings. The idea came to her when a book fell open onto the very page showing the inventory compiled 12 days after his death which cataloged all of his worldly possessions, and we’re jolly glad it did.
Joanna has also illustrated a series of gruesome turn-of-the-century French news items, delighting with her simple style that conveys accessible insight into fascinating subjects. We’re looking forward to seeing plenty more exciting concepts and stunning illustration from Joanna for many reasons, and we’re toying with performing a wow dance next time.
