Neil Gower is THE MAN
In this month’s Condé Nast Traveller there is a 6 page fully illustrated Barcelona travel mystery by Neil Gower and Tom Downey. I have seen Neil's work elsewhere but this piece led me to his portfolio site, which is filled with beautiful travel illustrations, maps, custom type, stamps, garden plans and ethnic paintings.
Gower has created hundreds of designs for books and magazines, including 48 of Agatha Christie's mystery novels, jackets for Faber & Faber, illustrations for Time Life, Condé Nast Traveller, House and Garden…the list is frighteningly long.
Neil’s fixation with draftsmanship, decorative illustration and travel began at the ripe age of 10 and led him to further his studies at Brighton. His work can be found in major publications across the world.
