The paper sculpture has been used for a kit with CDs and activities and tells the story of the birth Jesus through interactive events and storytelling. Gail has created a traditional nativity scene set against a buzzing bazaar populated by both traditional and modern day people; a night time setting where the stable glows in the foreground and rich, jewel colours give a warm, sumptuous and intimate feel.

Ruth Rowland works on the album lettering for The Art of McCartney.
Almost forty artists have contributed to this long awaited album which celebrates the song writing of Sir Paul McCartney. A documentary was made of the behind-the-scenes action at the recording sessions where artists including Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, Willie Nelson, Alice Cooper, Smokey Robinson, The Cure, Chrissie Hynde and Kiss perform tracks from the former Beatle’s back catalogue. Ruth says "I was asked to hand letter the names of the artists in a loose but legible script to fit within the square format for the vinyl and CD albums and box sets. Each layout was custom fitted to work with the individual products. It’s always interesting working on music projects, but this one involved such an eclectic mix of famous artists, it was exciting to learn the line-up as they signed up to the album."
