Rebecca Cobb

Rebecca is a recent graduate of Falmouth College of Arts illustration course. Her story is quite magical! She worked in a clothes shop, across the road from our bookshop, Falmouth Bookseller and one day she plucked up enough courage to show her work to Ron Johns, M.D. of Mabecron Books. He was completely blown away by her beautiful and sensitive work so the rest, as they say, is history! First Rebecca illustrated Pasties by Mabecron Book's author Lindsey Bareham and then was introduced to Helen Dunmore with a view to them collaborating on The Ferry Birds, also published by Mabecron Books. Subsequently she and Helen have gone on to produce The Islanders, another Mabecron venture which has been nominated for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal and the Holyer an Gof Award. Rebecca now has a growing portfolio of work including Missing Mummy and The Lunch for Macmillan. Her new projects include working with children's poet laureate Julia Donaldson and collaboration with none other than Richard Curtis...
