Josie’s illustrated picture book, The National Archives: The Buildings That Made London is out now!

Josie was commissioned by Bloomsbury Children’s Books to bring original architectural drawings from The National Archives to life with her artwork. Watch Buckingham Palace transform from a large country house into an opulent palace, spot Henry VII playing tennis on the lawn of Hampton Court Palace and get lost in the Palm House at Kew, London’s very own tropical rainforest!

Bursting with facts to delight both children and adults, The Buildings That Made London is a non-fiction title, featuring text by historian David Long.

Bloomsbury describes the book as a historical kaleidoscope celebrating the magnificent buildings that made London.

The Buildings That Made London was shortlisted for the World Illustration Awards 2018, and long listed for the Klaus Flugge Prize.

Josie’s exquisite eye for detail, superb use of colour, and intricate pattern work, have really bought our book to life. She is a fantastic creative, a pleasure to work with, and is always extremely professional and friendly’

‘Spectacularly beautiful… We’re absolutely in love with Josie’s artwork and this book wouldn’t be the beauty it is without Josie’s amazing time and dedication.’
