Anyway, as I didn't get to go to an exhibition, I thought I would put on a small one of my own.
Little Wood Peoplelittlewoodpeople is a shop on Etsy I discovered yesterday. It is full of amazing and varied characters and browsing through it is like reading a little story-each little person has such personality. Barbara Hart is the artist behind these little dolls. I love what she says in her profile about the dolls being a bit like a visual diary. The dolls above are called (left to right, top to bottom) Little Wood Octopi, Little Wood Man With Traumatic Injuries, Aliza and Little Wood Retro Robot. Go and meet the rest!
My Lacy Doilies
The Wedding Ghost by Leon Garfield, illustrated by Charles Keeping. I love Charles Keeping's work, which is what made me buy the book from the charity shop yesterday. I have not read it yet-but it looks very promising!
