Puffling was Small and Soft, limited edition print, $130
Puffling by Margaret Wild and Julie Vivas

This beautiful picture book published in 2009 was Julie Vivas's first move away from watercolour as her preferred medium. We just love the softness of line she has achieved by using soft pastels to portray these charming puffin characters.

New illustrated book by Shaun Tan - due Sept 23!

Title, limited edition print, price
The Singing Bones - Shaun Tan (Allen & Unwin)

In this beautifully presented volume, the essence of seventy-five fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm is wonderfully evoked by Shaun Tan's text and illustrations. The Singing Bones breathes new life into some of the world's most beloved fairy tales.

Nameless princes, wicked stepsisters, greedy kings, honourable peasants and ruthless witches, tales of love, betrayal, adventure and magical transformation: all inspiration for this stunning gallery of sculptural works. Introduced by Grimm Tales author Philip Pullman and leading fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes, 
'These little figures of clay, with their simplified features, their single attributes, are perfect realisations of the strangeness of the characters they represent.' - Philip Pullman.

• signed book available 
• Prints of a selection of the illustrations from the book will be availble soon.
