For many of the illustrations in The Knowledge we were lucky to be able to find exquisitely detailed line drawings from nineteenth century encyclopaedias, such as this one on the left depicting the major cereal crops.  Most of these were adapted to our purposes by the skilful illustrator Bill Donohoe, who also created several graphics from scratch, such as the basic tools of agriculture and the fundamental mechanisms of the crank and cam. Bill’s work is absolutely beautiful and has been used for lots of books in the past. Have a look at his website www.billdonohoe.comtools
