Cressida's two books, 'The Decorative Painter' (1996, Conran Octopus) and 'Cressida Bell's Cake Design' (2013, Double-Barrelled Books), both demonstrate Cressida's capacity as an illustrator.

She has also been commissioned by the London Review of Books to design many of their covers, and by Penguin, Thames & Hudson and other publishers to produce book jackets and illustrations. If you would like to commission a bespoke design please email.
