Folk Horror Revival are very happy to have had the poster for our first event at the British Museum designed for us by illustrator Becca Thorne.

The majority of her illustration work is linocut, hand-burnished using a teaspoon in place of a printing press.

Originally from the ancient Forest of Dean on the England/Wales border, she studied BA and MA Illustration at Falmouth College of Arts on the south Cornwall coast, graduating in 2004/05 respectively. She has been a full-time illustrator since 2008.

Repeat clients include BBC History Magazine, The Folio Society and National Trust Books. she has also worked with Kyle Books, Sight & Sound Magazine, Canongate Books, HarperCollins, The Earth Island Journal, eatbigfish, Compassionate Dorset, YSC, GQ, Continuum Books, phd, Anchor Canada, Rugby Borough Council and many more.
