Fabulous book and junk journal

A friend of mine gave me a copy of her fabulous book that she has had published, it's beautiful. Sabine has created this wonderful picture and story book. It features lots of Sabine's digital art and gorgeous graphics. The story is about the tales of everyday happenings of humans as overheard and told through the eyes of Frederic and Kate, a cat and mouse. It's called 'The Artful Correspondence of Frederic and Kate' and would make a great gift for young and old. If you check this site you'll get the best price for your region.







The above are just a small selection of the pages from the book, all of the pages are beautifully decorated and have so much detail you can spend hours taking it all in.

I'm also working on a commission that I've had for awhile now, it's a junk journal and I've loved creating the pages. It only needs it's cover now which I will be working on next week.









Just a random selection of the pages in the journal, there are lots more.

Hi, Ro! Hope all is well with you. Thanks for sharing the info on Sabine's gorgeous book. Reminds me a little of Nick Bantock's work (I'm a BIG fan!) Your journal is amazing and your client is going to be thrilled! Hugs to you.
