Husband and wife team Harry and Zanna Goldhawk met at university while studying illustration. After many late nights in the studio they discovered a shared love of nature and color that sparked many collaborative projects.
Harry and Zanna founded Pappio Press to give their main passion: beautiful animal illustration. The Pappio Press products are designed in house by Harry or Zanna (or both!). Both work hard to make sure that all the artwork they create tells its own unique and beautiful story, with gorgeous botanicals and characteristic animals.
