William Goldsmith is an illustrator and writer based in Glasgow.

He works with a hand-painted aesthetic, playing with texture, pattern and colour to create a sense of lightness and economy.
 
His illustrations have appeared in a range of publications and exhibitions, both in the UK and overseas. His clients include Assemble, The Independent, Royal Opera House, Vintage Books and Scottish Book Trust.

Published by Jonathan Cape, his book “Vignettes of Ystov” was nominated for a Newton First Book Award, while his second, “The Bind”, was nominated for a British Book Design and Production Award.
