My birdies flew all the way to Germany!
If you live there you can purchase these two books illustrated by me.
Published by Verlag am Eschbach:
Fange nie an aufzuhören, höre nie auf anzufangen & Ins Herz buchstabiert.
Both covers were made with my hand carved stamp designs.
Two more books will come out for their autumn/winter 2011 collection.
One is an anthology of poems about the joys of sending and receiving letters that will feature 20 of my bird collages with vintage postcards and ephemera & the other one
called "Soul Medicine" about all those little things in life that make us happy
by Christa Spilling-Nöker :)

Geninne, these are wonderful! You should do a collaboration with Ed Emberley! I would love to buy your German books for my daughter, who is taking German at school and just got back from a trip to Germany/Austria (too bad she didn't see them when she was there!). Best of success with them!

I love everything about them
- except the awful font on the covers. I wish they'd let you hand-draw it. Your work is amazing.

I live in Germany, and I'm so happy I can now go into a bookshop and buy these books. Your blog is one of my favourites of all time. I have been reading it for ages and I don't know why I never commented before, maybe because I was overwhelmed by the beauty. :)
