Young Artists is an illustrator's agency which
specialises in publishing and was established ten
years ago by John Spencer. The artists represented live all over the UK and many work
solely in science fiction.
Pierrot Publishing was incorporated in August
1975 by Philip and Jane Dunn to produce
illustrated books on an international basis. Since
then it has made a name, world wide, as a
publisher of high quality books in the science
fiction and fantasy fields.
Until recently the bulk of Young Artists' science
fiction work has been for paperback covers, but
they are now becoming more involved with large-
format illustrated books. Pierrot Publishing's
PLANET STORY, a novel by Harry Harrison,
features 50 pages of colour by Jim Burns, while
ALIEN LANDSCAPES includes the work of ten
artists, all illustrating different famous fictional
planets or worlds.
Young Artists has many more plans for large-
format illustrated science fiction books, both for
adults and children, while Pierrot Publishing, in
addition to their work in the science fiction and
fantasy fields, also publishes cookbooks, photographic books, and a variety of general material.
