Cover Artist: Slightly Foxed Issue 56, Clare Curtis, ‘The Thought Fox’, linocut

Clare Curtis has worked in print, design and illustration for over twenty years. The craft of drawing and printing are as important to her as the strong design, patterns and beautiful colour combinations that you’ll find in her work. As a lover of print and plants in equal measure, she is increasingly exploring our relationship with plants and nature, and our nation’s passion for gardening. A linocutter first and foremost, Clare uses traditional materials and methods to create her prints. Lino blocks are meticulously hand cut, each colour being printed separately to create a distinctive and beautiful original artwork.

In 2019 we decided to commission a new Slightly Foxed bookplate from Clare. We asked her for a lasting image that would sum up the spirit of Slightly Foxed, and you can purchase the elegant result here: The Slightly Foxed Bookplate.
