Safari Floor Dominoes for John Crane

Last week I got a very exciting package through the post! I received my first wooden toy product from company John Crane, who I've been working with for a while now (you may have seen the previous posts). I took some quick photos with Instagram for you to see (the bottom two are from the internet). It's a set of safari floor dominoes & they are so fun, my job was to design the characters & I'm really proud of them, which is your favourite?

Virginia Wolf

I just had to share this beautiful book with you today.

Written by Kyo Maclear
Illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault

"A story of two sis­ters, one blue, the other radi­ant, both brim­ming with imagination." 

The book is loosely based on the relationship between Virginia Woolf and her sister (the painter) Vanessa Bell. One day Virginia wakes up in a "wolfish" mood and her sister Vanessa does everything she can to make her sister happy again.

I have to say I let out a little squeal of delight when I opened up this book. The story is so touching & the illustrations are just beautiful. I will treasure this book.

Thank you to Emily for sharing such a wonderful find!
