Nobrow burst on the scene in late 2008 as the joint creative endeavor of two friends and ex-St Martin’s alumni: Sam Arthur and Alex Spiro.
As an independent publisher Nobrow has built a solid reputation as a purveyor of beautifully produced image-based books working with some of the best international artists, storytellers, and designers around.
As the founders stress, “We have striven both to bring fresh, young talent to wider audiences, as well as to remind the world of the great talents that have been producing stunning work for many years. We have played with concepts, narratives, genres, formats, printing methods, production processes and design in ways that have come to redefine the standards of quality in visual publishing the world over.”
In 2013 Nobrow launched a new imprint, Flying Eye Books, to publish books aimed specifically at children, 3 to 11. They currently publish around 35 new titles per year which are distributed all over the world. Their books include award-winning titles as well as critically acclaimed publications that define the picture book and art-comic genres.
Our judge, Sam Arthur, studied graphic design at Central Saint Martins and went on to direct commercials, music videos and short films before setting up Nobrow. Sam is also co-founder and Director of the East London Comics & Arts Festival (ELCAF) now in its 6th year. Sam sits on the board of directors of the Association of Illustrators an independent professional body representing the interests of illustrators all over the world. www.nobrow.net
