Hannah Berry is mostly a graphic novelist, but also a writer, illustrator, occasional lecturer and editorial gun-for-hire, as well as having been three-times tutor for the Arvon Foundation’s Graphic Novel Writing course and Booktrust’s seventh Online Writer in Residence.
Her first graphic novel BRITTEN AND BRÜLIGHTLY was begun while studying an illustration degree at the University of Brighton and was subsequently published by Jonathan Cape in 2008. It has been published in the USA, Italy, Holland, France and Serbia, with the French edition chosen as part of the official selection for the 2010 Angoulême International Comics Festival. Her second graphic novel ADAMTINE was published in 2012, also by Cape, and she is currently working on a third, LIVESTOCK, due in 2016.
She has contributed comics to numerous publications, including LA VILLA SUR LA FALAISE (Casterman 2010), HOAX: PSYCHOSIS BLUES (Ziggy’s Wish 2014), IDP:2043 (Freight, 2014) and ABOVE THE DREAMLESS DEAD (First Second 2014), and articles to New Statesman, Dazed & Confused and Huffington Post UK. Her artwork has been exhibited work in solo and collective exhibitions around the world.
She lives in Brighton with a cat, a tortoise, and a beloved Frenchman.
