The second issue of Shiny New Books is live (there's a lot to look at) including bits I've written. Please go and look at this bit for The New Sylva. It's one of the most beautiful books I've seen in a long time as well as being inspiring reading. The Shiny New Books review didn't have a lot of room for pictures so here are just a couple of snaps that I hope give a flavour of it.


  1. I love the frogs jumping into the text! It's great to see some creative book design.

  2. I didn't know about Shiney New Books but followed your link and really enjoyed reading your article - oh bother! Yet another book to add to the must get pile;-)

  3. Very glad to see these gorgeous pictures and happy we at SNB were able to get this book to you, and to have your great review! Many thanks.
