Solve It puzzle books
Art direction
Book design
Series styling
Solve It was a beautifully illustrated series of puzzle books inspired by fiction classics, the first two titles being set in the Alice in Wonderland and Sherlock Holmes universes. I directed and designed the full books from concept to press, commissioning artist Margarida Esteves to illustrate both titles. Margarida is a keen linocut printmaker and versatile fiction and non-fiction illustrator which really helped us curate a realistic but also lighthearted and whimsical aesthetic drawing from Victorian era aesthetics and printing techniques.
Each title used its own minimal colour palette inspired by the original stories. The books are intricately foiled and printed on elegant wood-free paper and they make lovely gifts for children and adults alike.
