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.
