Mo Book for Blake
03.09.12 | Lisa Campbell
John Blake is set to publish a “fun and unique” illustrated book on the back of the London 2012 Olympics called Where’s Mo?.
The £9.99 hardback, created by illustrator Harry Bloom, will be published on 23rd November and was signed in-house. It will ask readers to find illustrated figures of British Olympic running gold medallist Mo Farah striking his famous “Mo-bot” pose from busy scenes, such as a packed swimming pool, at a cycle track or in the crowd at an equestrian event.
Readers will also be asked to spot other famous Olympians out of the crowds, such as Team GB diver Tom Daley, Zara Phillips, cyclist Bradley Wiggins or athletic champion Jessica Ennis.
Editor Sara Cywinski, who is also providing the words for the book, said: “We are all really excited to be working on Where’s Mo? It’s such a fun project to commission and work on. It’s been a fantastic year for sport in Great Britain, and it’s great to celebrate a national hero like Mo in a fun and creative book.”
Harry Bloom is a freelance illustrator who has worked on a range of prjects including marketing and mobile apps. This is his first fully illustrated book.
