A copy of Martin Salisbury's latest collection of new children's book illustration came through the door this morning (Alexis' work is featured in it, hence). I've been looking at it for ages... I've never seen so much illustration I loved in one place! I normally don't like illustration collections, but this one - Colours and shapes and lines... paint and ink and papers... like beautiful flowers growing after a big grey rain. Looking at it makes me so happy I'm almost sad!
