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 create bookish bits and bobs to amuse one another. Realising that other book-lovers might enjoy them too, they set up TrindlesandRead.com as a way to share their bibliographic scribblings.
On this page you’ll find a few examples. You can find more at:
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.
To the left is the cover to Night Post and a few interior sneak peaks. Night Post was my first illustration project and first book with Improper Books. Beneath are covers for some of our other titles.
Moon Forest Flow is run by yoga teacher, rewilding advocate and women’s circle facilitator Carly Slade. Based out of a caravan in the English countryside, Moon Forest Flow is an adaptive, feminine and environmentally aware approach to yoga, nidra, nature, women's circles and menstruality.
