The Tyger Voyage by Nicola Bayley, Richard Adams


The Tyger Voyage by Nicola Bayley, Richard Adams

A gentleman tyger and his son set sail from Victorian England into the timeless unknown. Together they roam across the seas, through jungles, past ice-covered mountains and erupting volcanoes and many more unexpected hazards along the way. Bayley is a brilliant artist whose pictures glow like Medieval manuscripts . (Alison Lurie, The New York Times).


Bayley's pictures are characteristically painstaking and gentle, softly lit, finely worked and pretty. Sunday Times The pictures are full of fascinating details, and her tigers are beautiful sensuous creatures. Daily Telegraph Gorgeous. Evening Standard Lively narrative ballad. The Observer Full of charm and detail, there are elements of Rousseau and Dali and woodcuts and the Books of Hours. Times Literary Supplement
