French illustrator duo Mayumi Otero and Raphael Urwiller are a couple united by their unbridled love for print. When their visual arts/illustrative forces are brought together they go by the name of Icinori, and create some of the most beautifully considered, traditional publications, pamphlets, concertina books and posters around. Where before they drew inspiration from ancient visuals and historic illustration, the pair are now exploring more modern details and aesthetics. Their new work is straying further and further away from children’s book illustration and showing the world that they can attack pretty much any brief that gets handed to them.
