Glenn's binding of The Illustrated Man was awarded the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association's 'Highly Commended Prize'
in the Designer Bookbinders Bookbinding Competition 2018.

Bound in full Pentland goat with the design and background airbrushed in acrylics. The lines are tooled in carbon. Blocked quotation from the text crossing the front and rear leather doublures. Suede endpapers. Head and tail edges are decorated with acrylics. Hand sewn silk endbands. The design reflects not only the tattooed images but also the diverse worlds upon which the stories are set. Presented in a suede-lined wooden box with Pentland leather panel to the lid incorporating the title.
