Judges’ Comments A beautifully balanced book with a lovely interplay between type, colour, illustration and paper stock. It’s the attention to detail that makes this book stand out, right from the wonderful book spine to the delightful endpapers… and everything in between. The illustrator and designer have worked together seamlessly to create a work that has real charm, with type and illustration wonderfully supporting each other increasing their individual powers ten-fold.
