Charlotte Trounce

by Nancy on April 2, 2012

We’ve all heard the saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” but I have to admit: I’m often guilty of doing this at the bookstore. And who could blame me when there are such beautifully designed covers out there, such as those illustrated by Charlotte Trounce. A recent graduate in illustration at University College Falmouth, Charlotte currently freelances out of the UK. She works primarily with gouache and acrylic, and loves to create colorful and playful images that are inspired by narratives and vintage design.

I’m especially drawn to her fun and cheerful depictions of London. And be sure to check out her alphabet painting and calendar inspired by the 2012 Olympics.

These are absolutely fantastic! Especially that first one. I really like how they’re primary colour based. Very creative.

I always judge books by their covers! Though what is written on the pages is of ultimate import to me, a well-designed cover will always catch my eye.
