Beautiful Book #2

FArTHER written and illustrated by Grahame Baker-Smith. Templar Publishing, 2010. Winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal for excellence in illustration, 2011.

The death of Robin Williams brought this book to the forefront of my memory for it is a tale of artistry, genius, depression and loss. The text of the book is metaphorical and lovely but it is the illustrations that stay with you always.

Now, if someone would like to buy for me The Folio Society edition of his illustrated Pinocchio, introduced by David Almond, that would be swell. http://www.foliosociety.com/book/PNC/pinocchio
