An Illustrated Children's Guide for Harewood House
Harewood House is passionate about education and offers a wide range of educational activities for schools. It was felt there was a need for a children's guidebook that helped children to engage with the house more effectively and to serve as a fun workbook to fill in, full of interesting facts and stories. I was commissioned to design and illustrate the guidebook, creating illustrations that were appealing to children but still fitted in with the history and tradition of the house. I had the idea of including mice characters throughout the book in period clothes.
“Lisa was fantastic to work with on our Children’s Guidebook project. Her creativity and beautiful illustrations really brought the stories of Harewood to life, and her professionalism and efficiency meant the project ran incredibly smoothly.”
