WON this competition over at the lovely Fairy Tale Cupboard (thanks Claire), and my prize, soon to be winging it's way out to big, hot old Australia, is this gorgeous book by the incredible Oona Patterson! WOW...I don't think I've ever won anything before...oh, wait, I won a video of Live Under a Blood Red Sky: U2 at Red Rocks when I was 18. But that's so many years ago it hardly counts! I've just been having a bit of an online peruse of Oona's art with my girls, and they can hardly wait to read it too. Today's photo is a sample of her work; amazingly detailed, teeny, tiny cutouts from the pages of books. The figure of Ream herself (the eponymous heroine of the story), seen in the sailing boat, is only 1.5cm high. Just marvelous!
