A Personal Message from Andrew Skilleter
“Welcome to Book 2 of the ILLUMINART Trilogy! The book design is completed and it looks better than ever. Copies will be ready to send ASAP in September. The cost of print and production has soared since early last year so I regret we had to increase the price of the book but at the same time reduced the UK shipping charge. I’m pleased to feature an ambitious new commissioned artwork along with the next set of Target and BBC VHS covers, poster prints, calendar pieces and more plus some unseen/unpublished art! ILLUMINART 2 has striking design and the excellent print quality of Book 1 will be maintained. It’s in my DNA to deliver high quality on all fronts.”
