Sam Mckechnie is an artist working primarily with oil and found objects. Her work is inextricably entwined with fairytales, magic and charms, and her creations feature in interior and fashion publications across the globe. Alexandrine Portelli worked in the fashion industry for many years before returning to her roots to head up the design team at her family's interiors business. Her personal passions are writing and all things magical and mysterious. She is an avid collector of children's books, especially fairytales - the darker the better!
A book to delight , a seasonal celebration of tradition, magic, custom and folklore. The text and little random thoughts and sayings punctuating the beautiful collage style illustrations making some stunning still life scenes using found objects. The book has dash and style and there are little treasures to be found too, a good luck charm, a postcard and a folded pocket for some notes and messages at the back. There are things to do, things to celebrate the year as it progresses from bleak January through to Christmas with delicious recipes to celebrate feasts and festivals. A gorgeous book to marvel over and enjoy for many a year, a great family treat. ~ Sue Baker Like for Like ReadingAcadia Britannica: A Modern British Folklore Portrait, Henry Bourne & Robin Muir Maypoles, Martyrs & Mayhem: A Diverse and Diverting Guide to 366 Days of British Myths, Customs and Eccentricities, Quentin Cooper & Paul Sullivan
