Interview with Michael Heslop: During a long career in illustration. Michael Heslop has designed a multitude of memorable, striking book covers that not only helped to sell the novels but gave a glimpse into the atmosphere and plots inside. In particular, he created the jackets and covers for hardback and paperback editions of Susan Cooper's Dark is Rising series, which gained the approval of the author and are fondly remembered by fans of the series today. He discusses his career and his work.

Three Men in a Boat: Despite the enduring popularity and classic status of Jerome K Jerome's Three Men in a Boat, much about the book's original illustrator remained something of a mystery. We find out more about the elusive " A Frederics" and look at why these illustrations capture the tone of the book so well.

Paula Rego's Jane Eyre: Several wonderful illustrators have created their own impressions of Charlotte Bronte's most famous heroine, however most (usually men) have focused on her romantic, feminine and vulnerable aspects. Paula Rego turned this approach inside out when she depicted a strong, resilient and plain Jane, battered by adversity and doubt, yet indomitable in her physical presence and determination. We take a closer look at how Rego creates a heroine who is as resonant today as in the 19th century.

The Art of Bookplates: Finding an ex-libris in a secondhand book is a glimpse of a former owner and a forgotten life in a long gone library, but it can also be a work of art in its own right. We learn about the history of artistic bookplates and examine a few of the many examples by accomplished and sometimes famous, artists, engravers and illustrators.

Interview with Michael Leunig: What does it take to be designated a "national living treasure"? We ask Michael Leunig, whose work as cartoonist, poet, writer and philosopher has gained him worldwide popularity, about the future of cartoons and his forthcoming appearances in the UK and Northern Ireland.

Paul Peck's anatomical art: Medical and anatomical illustration has had a chequered history. Artists including Leonardo da Vinci produced striking work in brief periods when they were allowed to examine cadavers and record the human body with technical precision. Paul Peck, however, took the art to a new height in the 20th century, when he used it not only to educate, but also to demonstrate the beauty of microscopic detail. We take a look inside.
