Short biography
Nick Bantock was born in England. He went to school in the soulless suburbs of North East London, and from there he moved on to art college in the market town of Maidstone, Kent. At the age of 23, he gave up his job in a betting shop and began working as a freelance illustrator. Over the next 16 years, he produced covers for approximately 300 books, including novels by Philip Roth and John Updike. During the winter of 1988, he moved to Vancouver with his wife and young son. Two years later, he decided to try his hand at creating pop-up books, and the legend "Griffin and Sabine" was born.
