So on one of my (many) delves into instagram I discovered the amazing illustrations of Melissa Castrillion. Im probably a bit late to the party considering her twelve thousand followers! The colours she uses, to create these stunning visions of flora & fauna simply jumped off the screen and hit me!
I cant tell you how much I have fallen in love with this - my copy is on order! This little tale explores the wonderful world we live in, and how lucky we are to be in it. Its about Love and happiness - its simply the absolute feel good book of the year.
This is my favorite spread with the beautiful words 'If I had a little garden, I would name it Whole. Whole would be filled with roots and seeds, and feed my heart and soul'. Beautiful words accompanied by Melissa's whimsical dream like vision of Whole. I adore the pod like trees, and the little creatures living in the grass & flowers.
I Could wax lyrical about her work & this stunning book all day. A big ten out of ten from us!
