Here are some pages from Matt Buckingham‘s fantastic new book, The Vikings, which he illustrated for Wayland. His vivid and humorous artwork depicts some of the gory things The Vikings did to each other, as shown in the spreads below.
Matt has produced consistently wonderful work in a very short time and his clever use of facial expression and body language keep these¬†grizzly¬†facts from being too revolting!
The Vikings is the newest book in¬†The Gruesome Truth¬†series, which also includes the titles on Romans, Egyptians, Aztecs and Greeks (published in 2008). Another three books on¬†Victorians,¬†Middle Ages and¬†Tudors¬†are on their way, which we’re looking forward to seeing very soon.
