Artist Till Lukat Selected as Illustrator of the Cover of the Bristol 650 Book
Till Lukat has won our competition to find the cover illustration for the upcoming Bristol 650 book, which will feature a collection of newly commissioned essays about the future of Bristol.
We received applications from 33 local artists to design the cover of the Bristol 650 book. From these, three were selected to move forward to a shortlist, from which Till Lukat was named as the winner.
The Bristol 650 book will be designed, printed and published by Bristol Books, with 1,000 copies being given away for free at the Bristol Ideas Festival of the Future City in October 2023. The book is being funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
