All My Animals

All My Animals

By Dawid Ryski 
Published by Little Gestalten

This is another large format animal book, this time from illustrator and designer Dawid Ryski. Using retro style illustrations with appealing colour palettes, this is another great animal themed title.

Within the captivating pages of All My Animals, one page shows the animal and, on the opposite page, sits its matching accessory. These pairings invite readers to think about the distinct personalities of a jovial cast of animal characters and to be transported to a realm where animals interact with human objects. Short poems penned by Lauren Napier create a narrative to engage and delight readers of any age. From tigers to crocodiles to parrots, the nuances of the animal kingdom come to life in detailed portraits, humorous connections, and engaging poems.

This is a beautiful book. For one the size of it is huge! The cover is the head of a bear and when a reader is flicking through its pages the cover can look like the readers head! Each page feels like a vintage poster, with well thought out colour palettes and lovable character illustration. Children and adults will adore this animal filled book - the perfect accessory for us humans!

All My Animals is full of funny rhyming text and has quirky retro illustrations to boot. A great gift for any animal lover or one to adorn your coffee table that will be constantly admired by all that come across it. It's available to buy now at all good bookshops and from the Little Gestalten website
