Definitelyjenny Loves: Nina Cosford

Hello everyone! Welcome to another ‘DefinitelyJenny Loves’, this time we shine the spotlight on one of my favourite illustrators, Nina Cosford. I first saw her and her work when I visited ELCAF a while back, fell in love a bit and brought two brooches. Cosford’s work is bright and playful, with carefree marks and simple shapes.

Those that recognise her style, but may not remember her name, will most likely have already encountered it in these wonderfully illustrated pop-up books:

I first saw these when I was out and about in London, there was a sample of one in one of the gift shops. Being a student I unfortunately kept most of my money firmly in my pocket, so I didn’t buy it. However, I thoroughly enjoyed flicking through.

Anyway, there’s tons more work and videos of her creative process on her website, so check her out: http://www.ninacosford.com/
All images were taken from her blog: http://ninacosford.tumblr.com/

  2. Thank you! No worries, if I remember correctly, you’re a New Yorker right? (Apologies if that’s wrong in advance.) Ever visited London? 🙂
