Friday’s Library Snaphot ….

February 27, 2015

These little wood engravings are from The historiated initials from the farmer’s year by Clare Leighton introduced by Simon Brett 2013.

The book was among several used this week in a lesson with some students; before I returned to the store, it I had a peep … it is lovely!

Simon Brett’s introduction is wordy and long but nonetheless explains the methods Clare Leighton used on tiny blocks of wood and with what appears to be minimal effort to tell a story; she is a master! A book I would like on my book shelf it is  perfect bed time reading … it is what dreams are made from.
