The Very Best of Enya

I was thrilled when asked to work on the booklet for The Very Best of Enya album, a wonderful retrospective of her musical career spanning 20 years released this Christmas by Warner Records.

The commission involved hand lettering key lyrics for the CD which were then dropped over these sumptuous photographs by Simon Fowler. A very collectible Limited Edition Box Set of deluxe CD/DVD and 12" vinyl picture disc has also been released in which all the lyrics are hand lettered. Her original logo has been retained and my hand lettering used as a visual link throughout the inside of the booklet.

Anyone who is familiar with my work will know that I started freelancing as a lettering artist in the 1980's working primarily for the record industry. Enya released her debut album in 1987 to much acclaim and it's been great to get the opportunity to work for her after all these years.

If you'd like see who else I've worked for click through to my music folder on my portfolio site and if you'd like to buy The Very Best of Enya you'll find it available on Enya's official website.
