 The front cover of this year's book is a design by Angie Lewin
Angie Lewin studied art and then printmaking in London in the 1980s. After working as an illustrator she then went on to study horticulture followed by a return to printmaking.

Angie looks at plant communities on an intimate level, even the fine lines of insect eggs on a flower bud are observed in her work. Still lives often incorporate seedpods, grasses, flints and dried seaweed collected on walking and sketching trips.

Angie also refers to her interest in the work of Eric Ravilious "A Wedgwood cup designed by Ravilious, may contain feathers and seedheads"

The cup and saucer illustrated in her design above is one of Ravilious's Garden design:

the designs in this collection vary, and include gardening implements as well as plants. Have a look at other designs -such as the cucumber house...
 or flowers on a cottage table:
