"A timeless, touching, love-filled celebration of motherhood across cultures and eras"
Undoubtedly a beautiful gift to give and share for Mother’s Day, Mama also makes the perfect present for mums-to-be, new mothers, and long-time mamas. Hélène Delforge's stirring, honest words are a universal, lyrical wonder, with Quentin Gréban's portraits of mothers from all corners of the globe, across many different eras, infused with life, love and radiant detail.
Mama presents a journey through motherhood in all its complexity from those first steps, first words, first giggle, first exclamation of “Mama!” and first “I love you”, through to worries about the world — how mothers need to be “a fortress against the hardships of the world”. Then there are those guilt-inducing remarks, the conflicting “unwanted advice” about breastfeeding, bottles, how to handle a crying baby, and where your baby should sleep. It’s an emotive tale of change, of mother and child journeying together, of planting seeds, tending them, and watching them bloom. Above all, this is a soulful once-a-mama-always-a-mama story to treasure, no matter how old you or your child might be.
