limited edition prints and original illustrations
A celebrated children`s illustrator delves into his childhood memories in this astonishingly personal, illustrated look at an artist`s young mind. A record of the artist`s first seven years of life in London before his family moved to Australia, the book's two-page spreads are each devoted to a specific memory of the city, as though he were compiling a collection of memories by which to remember his home country.
Each hauntingly illustrated memory is accompanied by a short bit of simplistic text that captures the essence of child-speak. Capturing the entire spectrum of a child's emotions, from extreme joy to profound loneliness and fear, this intensely personal autobiographical work invites readers to explore and reconnect with the pulse of their own childhood.
