Helping bring the Leslie Charteris character The Saint back to life in print

"Simon Templar is The Saint - daring, dazzling and just a little bit disreputable. On the side of the law, but standing outside it, he dispenses his own brand of justice one criminal at a time."


The Saint, probably best remembered for the 1960's TV series starring Roger Moore, was a 'modern day Robin Hood', a fictional character created by author Leslie Charteris and first appeared in 1928. The character has spanned the decades and enthralled new generations in many formats including a 1940's radio series starring Vincent Price as the Saint, a 1970's TV series with Ian Ogilvy donning the halo and even a Hollywood feature film in the late 90's starring Val Kilmer. A new Saint TV pilot has recently been filmed starring Adam Rayner as The Saint, with guest appearances by Roger Moore, Ian Ogilvy and a certain white Volvo P1800!

A huge fan of the Saint adventures since a young age courtesy of the 1970's series 'Return of The Saint', it was an amazing privilege to work on The Saint. Also it was an enormous challenge, looking back at previous book cover designs for the Saint particularly from the 1950's and foreign language editions, it became apparent my predecessors had set an extremely high standard of originality and inventiveness with the Saint stickman character in all manner of different poses and activities that really make you smile. Each different outing for the Saint over the years has it's own strong look and style, most noticeably in film and TV branding, that instantly identifies which era of Saint you are looking at that refreshed the brand from the era before. The challenge was to create a whole new set of original Saint images that show the Saint in new scenarios that encapsulate the story or title of the book, whilst occassionally making a nod to particularly iconic covers from the past, topped off with a strong new brand identity.
