We are all big fans of picture books in our house. When my daughter was young Damian and I would pour over books bought solely for their illustrations to read to Lula, many of which we kept as I couldn't bear to pat with them and all the memories they hold. Each Christmas we seem to add a picture book or two, (I think this was last year's purchase) and this year we discovered a couple of beauties.
|The Fir Tree, Sanna Annuka|
It is a typical Hans Christian Anderson sad and sorry moral tale with breath taking pictures. Sanna Annuka is a English/Finnish print designer who works for Marimekko as well as producing her own products.
Damian found this book. He is a big fab of creative paper cutting as well as fairy tales.
|The Fairy Tale Princess|
