For as long as Miranda Krestovnikoff can remember, she has always loved to be outdoors. Her passion for wildlife started early on by observing animals in the wild and keeping a veritable menagerie at home in the laundry room! Miranda studied Zoology at Bristol University and even before graduating, secured work at the BBC Natural History Unit. Miranda later became a presenter and this enabled her to travel and present conservation stories from around the globe. Today, Miranda is involved in several charities including the RSPB, National Trust and WDC and has been acclaimed as 'the new David Attenborough' (The Sunday Times) and 'the highest-profile Wreck diver in Britain'. Jill Calder has been working as an illustrator since 1993. She is also a calligrapher, digital artist and lecturer with a love of drawing, ideas, colour, ink, typography, book-binding, and sketchbooks. Jill relishes blending traditional and digital image-making methods as seamlessly as possible to create her award-winning illustrations and lettering. She is the illustrator behind Bloomsbury's stunning The Picture Atlas.
