James Cropper, based in the English Lake District, supplies distinct, custom-made paper products to many of the world’s leading luxury brands, art galleries and designers. 
James Cropper commissioned me to create 4 images reflecting the quintessential English landscape of the Lake District using 4 different mediums: watercolour, acrylic, pen & ink and pencil crayon. Each panel represents a paper type and joined together they create a single viewpoint. I chose a traditional approach to the landscapes but always wanted to keep them fresh and contemporary. The image was ultimately used as cover for the Cropper Artpad to showcase all the art papers manufactured by Cropper.

Stabenfeldt Publishing, based in Sweden, commissioned Jo Goodberry through NB Illustration to produce children's 
story book 'ASTRA". The novel follows the relationship between a 13 year old girl and an Arabian endurance horse. 
The original book was penned by American novelist Chris Platt and translated into Norwegian, Finnish & Swedish. 
Jo provided the cover and all the inside B&W illustrations.

Jo illustrated new British Bake Off judge Prue Leith's recipe column in the Daily Mail for 3 years, until ironically 
the column was taken on by the BBC where photography was used instead. Jo illustrated 5 recipes a week so this is 
just a small selection of the hundreds of illustrations produced over that time.

August 2017
Jo was commissioned by novelist Emma K Robling to create a book cover & typography for her new novel 
"Beside The Sea". A chick-lit novel set in beautiful Dorset, Emma was keen to highlight a specific view 
overlooking West Bay where the novel plays out. 
Emma Robling said
"Having been wowed by the beautiful covers produced for best seller Belinda Jones, I contacted Jo in the hope that she would 
would be able to bring to life the ideas I had galloping around my head for the cover of my debut novel ‘Beside The Sea’ . 
I was really impressed that Jo took the time to read my synopsis, and understand both the look and feel I wanted for my cover. 
She then patiently walked me through the entire process and gave me a timeframe of completion for each stage. We were in 
regular contact throughout to choose colours and fonts etc.
I vividly recall walking my dogs in the woods and my phone pinging, announcing an email containing my finished art work. 
Opening it I shrieked with excitement, it really was everything I had hoped for. Thrusting my phone into the face of a complete 
stranger I announced “Look, it’s my book cover”. The poor woman smiled politely and walked away very quickly!  
As my second book begins to take shape, I’m already looking forward to working with Jo on my next cover. But this time I’ll 
at least wait until I get back into the car before I open my email...."
Published as an e-book, "Beside the Sea" is available as a download purchase on
