“It is the custom of every good mother after her children are asleep to rummage in their minds and put things straight for next morning, repacking into their proper places the many articles that have wandered during the day." ― J. M. Barrie, The Adventures of Peter Pan
My copy of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is here! I quickly gave up trying to photograph it because I couldn’t do it justice, but hopefully this gives you a hint of how completely precious it is. This edition has gold foil details on the cover and full-color illustrations by Anna Bond throughout.
Excited to share my recent project with Random house books illustrating the cover for their Puffin Books Series, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase. It was a great experience to work on this cover, being able to illustrate the text as well as the image. This is a draft version of the final cover, which will be in UK book stores this summer. Thanks very much AD Matt Jones for the opportunity and wonderful art direction.
“The clocks were striking midnight and the rooms were very still as a figure glided quietly from bed to bed, smoothing a coverlid here, settling a pillow there, and pausing to look long and tenderly at each unconscious face, to kiss each with lips that mutely blessed, and to pray the fervent prayers which only mothers utter.” ― Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
