A. J. Wood, Mike Jolley - Authors

AMANDA WOOD began her career in illustration at the Natural History Museum, and went on to be the founding Editor and Publisher of Templar for more than 30 years. In her time there, she published and nurtured numerous Greenaway winners, and edited and wrote ground-breaking series such as The Ologies, which have sold over 19 million-copies worldwide. Today she writes and runs her own small press from her home in Surrey.

MIKE JOLLEY has worked as a Book Designer and Art Director in children’s publishing for over 25 years. He is the author of Grunter - the story of a pig with attitude and more recently, I’ll see you in the morning - a gentle lullaby illustrated by Mique Moriuchi. Mike also exhibits and sells artwork made from found and collected objects, under the name ‘Box 2’. It was during one of his many junk shop visits that the idea of referencing mid-century school information charts as a design approach first took shape for Curiositree. He lives on a cliff overlooking the English Channel.
