Lovely book look

My Birthday gift.

I had a lovely book bought for my birthday recently, by my equally lovely  friend 'D'.
So I wanted to post some photos of it, as it is quite delightful.

The tale is based on Red Riding hood, and I can remember looking at the blog of Jackie Morris ages ago, when this book was still in progress. I love the work of Catherine Hyde, and she has made such a  wonderful job of creating the magic of this tale, which is always a popular subject with illustrators, even though the subject is quite dark and sinister, or probably because it is just that.
I will let you browse some of the pages, the use of the light and dark is brilliant.

What an image, quite scary?

My favourite pages, oh how delightful!!

 I also managed to get back to York and armed with the camera, got round to taking those close up shots of around the doorway of York Minster, after a quick walk on the wall again :)

Such a magnificent doorway.

just a tiny snippet of detail

This one made me smile.

More of the detail.
I am sure there is some dark story behind all these carvings, I shall have to investigate?
A lovely book in the centre there, it reminds me of Sandra Van Doorne?

Those cheeky little rascals in Bettys window, I could have bought the lot!!

This one made it home, and went down, down the little red lane, you won't see that fat rascal again!
Hope you enjoyed my update. I've been busy working, but not much artworking, I may get some time soon to do much more. Bye for now folks.
