My children's book from ten years ago - Jane Foster





I recently came across a children's book that I did for my sister's children around ten years ago. The ginger cat 'Marmalade' hasn't changed much and still features in my designs! I was inspired by Dick Bruna's Miffy books - it was called Rosie and Joni visit Auntie Jane in Brighton! I had red hair in those days!

Alain Gree illustrations











I've recently bought this children's book and memory card game dating from the 60s. The illustrations are by Alain Gree who I love. The memory card game has some cards the same as Eames packs of cards and the cute characters are by Alice and Martin Provensen.

Boot sale vintage wooden toys



I was in Chichester yesterday and was lucky to come across a boot sale with a stall selling vintage games and toys. These are the ones I picked up.
