Trindles & Read
Benjamin Read and Laura Trinder (otherwise known as Trindles & Read) make books together. Benjamin is the words, Laura is the art, and they colour in-between each other’s lines on storytelling to make it all work. Which somehow it does.
They also like to make bits and bobs to delight and amuse one another. Realising that other book-lovers might enjoy their bits and bobs too, they set up TrindlesandRead.com as a way to share their bibliographic musings, jokes, and scribblings.
On this page you’ll find a few examples. You can find more at:

Work commissioned by publishers to promote books and reading. The majority of this work was created for the client’s use on social media, with the final two being printed as posters.
Improper Books is a studio focusing on creator-owned stories that have a touch of the fairy tale, the fantastical, or the otherworldly.
Originally founded in 2009 by Benjamin Read (Writer), Laura Trinder (Illustrator), and Chris Wildgoose (Illustrator). While collaborating on the set of the UK independent feature ARMISTICE (2013), the trio discovered a mutual love for comics, illustrated books, and the darker side of fairy tales, and set about making their own.
From that, the idea of Improper Books was born; a collective of like-minded writers, illustrators, and other creatives with the know-how to make comics, books, and apps, all of which would have a touch of the fairy tale, the fantastical or the otherworldly, and based on a creator-owned model that is fair to all involved.
