Thumbelina

Vickie Price

I was blog hopping the other day and came across a beautiful Italian children's book of Thumbelina.  I have no skills in Italian whatsoever but the illustrations were stunning and I had to see more!  It came through the post earlier this week and I wasn't disappointed....

The vibrancy of colour hasn't come through in my shots but the pink that is used is neon - just that one colour but it is a thread that connects each page really cleverly.  A lovely device.

These smaller black, white and neon pink cameos appeared on every other page - just like a footnote or a nod to the text.  This combination of colour drawings and smaller 3 tone nods looks like another formula but adds variety, breaking up the book.

The composition of these smaller ones were rather cute too - like placement prints or card designs they cleverly used the content of the picture to frame the subject.

Each page is undoubtably pattern but with a very clear, endearing narrative.  It really reminds me of a brighter version of the temple wall art in Bangkok.

I love it!  I think that this is going to be a massive source of inspiration for me.
