Bruce Munro was born in 1959 and completed a B.A. in Fine Arts at Bristol Polytechnic. Shortly thereafter he moved to Sydney, where he learned about design and lighting, inspired by Australia’s natural light and landscape. Returning to Southwest England in 1992, he settled with his family in the countryside near Bath and set up a studio.
This was done through a technique called “fore-edge painting,” which is an illustration that is hidden on the edge of the pages of the book. The technique allegedly dates back to the 1650s.
