James Nunn was born in Yorkshire in 1973 and now lives in Bath. He is a self-taught artist. After an undergraduate degree and a Masters in contemporary poetry at the University of Manchester, he worked for many years as a book designer and illustrator. For the last twelve years he has combined this with his own practice as a fine artist. The two disciplines inform and nourish each other. His art helps his illustration avoid cliché, while his illustration lends themes and forms to his art: often the experiments in illustration form the basis for new standalone work. He regularly exhibits in London and Bath. For more of James Nunn’s work follow him on Instagram and to buy prints see www.jamesnunnart.com.
‘Now We Are 20’ is an original linocut designed to celebrate the publication of the 80th issue of Slightly Foxed and our 20th anniversary in 2024. It features on the cover of our 2024 Wall Calendar. James also designed a series of fox linocuts which appear on the back covers of Slightly Foxed Issues 77, 78, 79 and 80. These foxes have been reproduced in postcard form and can be purchased in a pack containing two of each fox design from the Slightly Foxed online shop.
