Jonathan Burton

There’s a old-time darkness to Jonathan’s work, most present in his series of Kingsley Amis book covers for Penguin Modern Classics. His laboured, life-like illustration has the aesthetic and conceptual edge to some of the classic American illustrators of the 20th century and his ability to create accurate, melancholic characters has won him numerous awards over the years. Jonathan, who originates from the UK, now lives and works from France where he works on editorial, design, book covers and personal work.
