Christmas came early yesterday afternoon when the lovely Thibaud Herem came to visit us bearing his beautiful new publication and a whole load of original drawings for us to gawp at. To many people, Thibaud is ‘the guy who draws those amazingly detailed buildings’ and that’s fine, because that’s what he is. What I mean by this is that nobody else in the entire illustration world, nay world, creates anything like Thibaud.
Going through Rotring pens faster than cups of coffee and sometimes spending over 200 hours drawing one building, Thibaud is something of a miracle worker. NoBrow, who published this beauty of a book, gave Thibaud complete freedom with the layout allowing him to design exactly the kind of publication he needed to put across his enormous, scale drawings of London’s most curious buildings across. The result is a Tiffany-blue, hardback beauty with thick, concertina pages for you to pull out and have your mind blown over and over again.
