Very little on this right now, the website is a single illo and a call to arms for the virtues of print, but essentially Nobrow Press, the UK comic and arts publisher, has just announced that they plan to launch a new children’s line, Flying Eye Books in February 2013, as announced on their blog:
“…..we’re also thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new children’s imprint – Flying Eye Books.
Featuring the same commitment to great storytelling, eye-popping artwork, great design and sustainable manufacturing that characterises Nobrow books, Flying Eye aims to bring you the most beautifully produced, entertaining, collectible, cherishable (not perishable!) and wonder-filled books you could wish for.
With work from the likes of Viviane Schwarz, Ben Newman and ATAK, as well as the latest instalment in Luke Pearson’s Hilda series, we hope that you’ll find something to love with every Flying Eye release coming in the New Year.”
Nothing more than that right now, so it looks like it may be Nobrow further muddying the waters between art book, comic book, and children’s picture book. Good. I reckon Nobrow are a perfect fit for this sort of thing.
Oh, here’s that image…. more in the New Year:
