I’m tired, so I’ll make this brief.
I’m partly tired because I keep staying up late every night working on two books that I finally finished last night. They are relevant to today’s topic of retail because the possibility of making your own professional-looking version of anything you want is, I think, the best thing to have happened to retail in my lifetime.
I’ve made them both pre-viewable so you can have a look. First one is called Who’s Afraid of the Dark? and it’s a book my mum wrote years ago and got my grandmother to illustrate. It’s never been printed before (we just had the original watercolours, so it’s been pretty exciting to play with her images and my mum’s text). Felt like having a conversation between the three of us even though my grandmother died almost 20 years ago.
Second one is an ABC book for Leo. It’s full of in-jokes and all the stuff he’s into.
