Ingela P Arrhenius is a powerhouse in the world of design, with her wondrous bold illustrations donning everything from wallpaper to home accessories. Animals is her first title with Walker Books and it is filled with all kinds of animals, from alligators to zebras. A treat for any fan or introducing Ingela's work to a new one!
There are quite a few animal alphabet books on the market at the minute, but this stands out for two reasons. One this is not a typical ABC book, the animals aren't in alphabetical order, instead they are just random using animals that aren't always obvious. Secondly this book is HUGE! It's presented as a very large format hard back (454 x 332 mm) which would be a great coffee table book or on a shelf in a nursery. Each page is good enough to be a poster or print, it looks that good!
This is a wonderful art book. From stunning illustrations to desirable typography, this is a book to cherish and keep. A lovely present for Christmas this year for art lovers to introducing young children to the wonderful world of animals. Animals is available to buy from all good bookshops and to buy online from Walker Books. To find out more about Ingela and her work check out my interview here.
