Oliver Jeffers Illustration for Bessemer Grange
In December 2013, we were very excited to launch a unique collaboration between Bessemer Grange and the internationally renowned children’s author and illustrator Oliver Jeffers.
Oliver Jeffers is one of the most popular authors of our children’s generation, with award winning books including How to Catch a Star, Lost and Found, Up and Down, The Way Back Home and The Heart and Bottle. His latest book – the Day the Crayons Quit, in collaboration with Drew Daywalt – is a New York Times #1 Bestseller.
The school is extremely honoured that Oliver Jeffers created a unique artwork for Bessemer Grange based on our school song. He took inspiration from the verse about the old oak tree, planted to commemorate the engineering achievements of Henry Bessemer, and brought it to life as a watchful guardian of every child at the school.
This is a truly unique and special artwork for the school, and we are very grateful to Oliver for taking the time to create it, as well as a new F@B logo. F@B have used the logo on tshirts, tote bags and egg cups over the past year – look out for more at future F@B events.
