Copy of Books & Zines XXII : I Want My Hat Back

My Sunday books and zines series is back! This hilarious tale is another picture book favourite of mine, bought numerous times for gifts I've also ended up my own copy at some point. The characters are wonderful in their simplicity and subtleties, those eyes and the wickedly deadpan humour they emit - gets me every time!

I Want My Hat Back, by Jon Klassen. Published by Walker Books Ltd, UK. This edition published 2012.

Books & Zines XXI : The Marvellous Fluffy Squishy Itty Bitty

This week’s #booksandzinesseries journeys through the wonky, textured, mixed-media town of five and a half year old Edith, Eddie to her friends, who’s on the hunt for the perfect birthday gift for her mum. I was intrigued to learn this book was censored for it’s English audience. In the original European version, Theo, the butcher holds a knife instead of just a pointing finger. 

The Marvellous Fluffy Squishy Itty Bitty, by Beatrice Alemagna. This edition published by Thames and Hudson, UK 2015.

It was so hard to edit and limit the images to show you, every spread is a work of art, rich with details and texture. 

Perhaps I should be sharing a Christmas book given it is tomorrow however I actually don't own one. Instead I chose a story that feels festive and aligns with my own life a little... it was my mums birthday this week too. Happy birthday mum.

Polish Christmas Tree


Recently while going through old photos I came across images from Krakow's Ethnographic Museum, a place my husband and I visited about 18 months ago. There was a section dedicated to Christmas with this beautifully decorated tree and given it's that time of year again it's been on my mind.

My photos aren't great, they were taken with my phone however I wanted to remember them here, maybe you'll enjoy them too. If you're lucky enough to be in this part of the world I highly recommend a visit.

Happy holiday season wherever you may be!
