Illustration: Peter Rhodes’ illustrations form a lovely social narrative

Peter Rhodes’ charming illustration is underpinned by something darker; his comic strips for example might at first glance seem somewhat naive, but if you look closer the social commentary at play quietly beckons you in. We especially like his deck of playing cards; each suit is based on a different region of the world and there is a theme to each number – from hats, food and houses to religious buildings, sport and spiritual objects. Suddenly the game SNAP doesn’t sound like just a dreary wet-playtime activity, eh?
