Author and publisher Sam Hutchinson of Bsmall publishing was inspired by the way Sarah cuts whole natural worlds from a single piece of paper, so together they put together the idea for this wonderful book; we think their collaboration has been a real success. The book uses Sarah's artwork to take the reader on a journey of discovery across seven different regions around the world, giving readers the opportunity to become an intrepid explorer; discovering and learning all about the native animals they encounter along the way.
Sarah is a nature enthusiast, so for her this project was a absolute joy to create. She challenged herself to produce by far the most intricate and detailed designs she have created to date. She loved cutting the complex detail into each scene, hiding each animal in their natural habitat and making sure that there was something new to discover each time your eyes glance around the page.
Here's a little time lapse video of Sarah making the cutting for the cover. So intricate!
And here are a few snaps from the wonderful book launch at The Playful Toyshop.
We think this book looks like the perfect Christmas present or stocking filler, for adults and children a like!
