Six Tudor Queens Portraits, Cover arts - Headline Publishing London UK

 Jane Seymour Queen, Katherine Of Aragon Queen, Anne Boleyn Queen portraits for the covers of the books “Six Tudor Queens” by Alison Weir, series of historical fiction following the wives of King Henry VIII, Headline Publishing Group London 2017-2018. Whilst the portraits want to be close to the historical paintings of the Queen, their faces, expression and overall look and feel wants to be a little more contemporary. The decorated background was inspired from tissues and tapestries at the Tudor Court.

Full credit: Illustrations by Balbusso Twins, cover design by Siobhan Hopper,
title in gold is designed by Stephen Raw, Publishing Group London 2016-18 UK.

The books are very precious, the title in gold is designed by Stephen Raw.
The structure of the cover is a Queen's portrait in a circular frame, against a tapestry background and the heraldic emblem.

To mark the launch of the second novel in historian Alison Weir’s Six Tudor Queens series, Jack Arts @jack__arts (Creative out-of-home agency for the arts and culture space) created a larger than life spill-board in London Bridge with our art portrait of Anne Boleyn, very beautiful and attractive!
