An Inspiring Book

Yes, me too! Lots of snow back again after the christmas break this fine morning. The weather stick told me so. And the view out the window might have had something to do with it too!The book?
One of my christmas presents was this wonderful inspiring book called the Art of Lisbeth Zwerger. She's one of my favourite illustrators and it's obvious from her work that she too is a fan of Arthur Rackham. An all-time favourite of mine :)

Just look at those amazing pictures! I love it, I love it!

It is a great book, in my *best book shelf* bizarrely the only one about her that that I know of. Nice restrained palette too ;)

Wow I can't believe how much snow you guys are getting! My friends and family still in Wales are under snow too! It looks so beautiful though!!

Jessie said...

Hi Nicola, yes it's quite thick and the pavements haven't been gritted so they're like an ice rink with the compressed snow!
