Paper crafting illustrator Owen Gildersleeve was approached by author Zadie Smith to use one of his images for the cover of her newest book, Intimations. The book is a short and timely series of reflective essays written during the early months of Lockdown. Zadie selected an image from Owen’s personal series Shadow Spaces, which was made in collaboration with Lenny Lenthall and studying the relationship between space, form, light and it’s natural counterpart shadow, featuring a series of miniature paper architectural spaces, each defined by the way they reflected light.
Shoutout to Art Director Darren Haggar at Penguin Press! Intimations will be released on July 28th via Penguin Random House.
