“Harvey Kidder explains the game with a clarity that is absolute.” —The New Yorker



Author Bio

Harvey Kidder was a highly-renowned author, artist and illustrator. His popular book, “The Kids’ Book of Chess”, was originally written for his son and has been in print for over thirty years.


I graduated from The University Of Lincoln with an illustration degree in 2014. Warm, bold colours, painterly strokes, textures, and repeat patterns are my inspiration whilst simple shapes and tiny details stimulate me as a creative. I’m always trying to incorporate new artiness from the various world cultures i read about/explore.
