John Vernon Lord
Illustrations for Ulysses
Author: James Joyce
Published by The Folio Society, London, 2017
John Vernon Lord is a reputable author, illustrator and teacher. His prolific body of work has been widely published and translated. Lord’s illustrations for Ulysses aim to guide the reader through James Joyce’s notoriously labyrinthine text. Created using black ink, watercolour and collage the work was reduced digitally in reproduction. The judging panel admired the clever inclusion of an image strip in the lower frame of each illustration, serving as a key to Joyce’s concoction of writing styles and literary references.
