I have a lot of books... and this is in the top 10 of my favourites.
I go back to it time and time again.
I bought it at a jumble sale, (yard sale) when I was about 15 years old for 5p.
The Swiss artist Celestino Piatti, with his thick black lines was a massive influence.
See more from the book here.

  1. What a great book, and what a good eye you must have had at 15. I hadn't heard of Piatti, but his style is very familiar, and I think I must go and find more. Thanks for sharing!
