ULVERTON

We commissioned Jonathan Gibbs tio ilustrate the Vintage Classics reissue of Ulverton to marks the 20th anniversary of its first publication. At the heart of Adam Thorpe’s novel lies the fictional village of Ulverton, whose story over three hundred years is told by many different voices. Jonathan's woodcut style gives the cover a traditional feel but with modern twists, which help show the historic sweep of the novel.
