Synopsis

Pocketful of Posies A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes by Salley Mavor

This hand-picked collection of calssic nursery rhymes, all delicately and painstakingly illustrated by Salley Mavor, who is renown for her incredibly detailed fabric and cloth scenes. It took Mavor ten years to develop her own fabric relief technique to a level where she felt comfortable even considering illustrating a book. Now, Mavor embroiders and sews illustrations, each scene taking nearly a month to complete. In this book, Mavor renders a new and visionary nursery rhyme world with precision and intricacy for many a generation to treasure for years and years to come.

Reviews

Mavor's intricate and colourfully embroidered work of art makes even the best-known childhood poems feel special and new again. (Publishers Weekly)
