Description Edit | History

Richard Hook (1938 - January 12, 2010) was an artist who was the art editor of the magazine Finding Out during the 1960s. Born in Godstone, Surrey County, England, he became a freelance artist in 1966. Hook was known for as an illustrator of Native American culture, children's magazines, and over 50 Osprey books. He also worked as a cover artist for Iron Crown Enterprises.

Hook previously served in the 1st Battalion, Queen's Royal Regiment and had been living in Sussex. His son Jason Hook is an author and publisher while his children Adam and Christa are both established illustrators.

He died in 2010 after a two-year battle with the cancer. His last Osprey book was Elite 178, Hatamoto: Samurai Horse and Foot Guards which he completed in late October 2009. He was a friend of fellow artist Angus McBride.
