Robert Ryan is an artist, writer and filmmaker living in London, England. He is known for his tactile paper-cut illustrations that often incorporate hand lettering with filled counters and rules along the baseline and cap height. Though his letterforms are somewhat crude and perhaps naive, they also possess a certain folk art charm and designer sensibility. He designed the cover of The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly for British publisher Hodder Headline with spiky serifs that relate to their thorny environment. Robert designed a paper-cut dress for Vogue UK in conjunction with his friend, designer Gary Page, that serves as a wearable contemporary storybook. More of Robert Ryan’s work can be found at his website, his blog and his Columbia Road shop blog. Robert also sells his work through Etsy.
