Joan Lingard's New Jacket!


The enterprising team at Floris books set up a pop-up gallery in Edinburgh's Number 17 on Dundas Street to showcase the astonishing range of entries for The Kelpies Design and Illustration Awards.

If you weren't fortunate enough to see them in situ, you'll find them here on the Floris website.

Joan Lingard's The Sign of the Black Dagger is a pacey historical mystery for 8 to 12s set in Edinburgh's Old Town. It tells the story of two children whose father simply vanishes one day... When they discover an old diary they find themselves linked with Edinburgh's Old Town 200 years previously, and a situation that mirrors their own.

Which would you have voted your winner?

It must have been a tough choice for the editorial team at Floris, but we're absolutely delighted that they decided on Astrid Jaekel's version. If you don't know Astrid's work, take some time to visit her website.

Floris Books is publishing Joan Lingard's The Sign of the Black Dagger this summer.
