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 http://shinynewbooks.co.uk/non-fiction02/the-new-sylva-a-discourse-of-forest-and-orchard-trees-for-the-twenty-first-century-by-gabriel-hemery-and-sarah-simblet/ 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.
I love the frogs jumping into the text! It's great to see some creative book design.ReplyDelete
