Peter Malone has worked for many years as a successful children’s illustrator. The classic beauty, intricacy and occasional quirkiness of his artwork make any book by him an object of beauty.
Peter's latest work A Tale of Two Dragons (Andersen Press), written by Geraldine McCaughrean is described by The New Statesman as 'a gently satirical and gorgeously illustrated fable'. Among his other major projects have been Peter and the Wolf (Random House USA), Children's Bible Stories (The Folio Society), and the nonfiction children's book Wonders of the World's Museums by Molly Oldfield (Wren & Rook), where he illustrated fascinating objects from the Terracotta Army to the world's first plane to Pelé's football shirt.
His previous work includes commissions from the New Yorker, book jackets, and Christmas stamps for the Royal Mail. He works in gouache and watercolour and lives in Bath, England.
