Winner of the 2013 Book Illustration Competition announced

Congratulations to Finn Dean, illustrator of Brave New World

The winner of the 2013 Book Illustration Competition, sponsored by The Folio Society and House of Illustration was announced last night, 9 July. Finn Dean, graduate of the Bath School of Art and Design was awarded the commission, worth £4,500, to illustrate Folio's forthcoming edition of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, due for publication in September 2013. In a very strong field, his images, focusing on the cityscapes and landscapes of Huxley's prescient imagination, were judged to be outstanding. Finn Dean's work has recently featured in Danny Boyle's film Trance. The 2013 panel comprises broadcaster, curator, former Chairman of Arts Council England and House of Illustration trustee Professor Sir Christopher Frayling, writer and Lord Northcliffe Professor Emeritus at UCL, John Sutherland, last year’s competition winner Igor Karash and Flora Craig from House of Illustration, together with Folio’s Production Director Joe Whitlock Blundell, Senior Editor Tom Walker and Art Director Sheri Gee (both pictured with Finn Dean)
