    blog image Young, up-and-coming illustrator William Grill weaves a detailed visual narrative of Shackleton's journey to Antarctica. Grill's beautiful use of colored pencils and vibrant hues effortlessly evokes the adventure and excitement that surrounded the expedition. His impeccably researched drawings, rich with detail, fastidiously reproduce the minutiae of the expedition. Children will love examining the diagrams of the peculiar provisions and the individual drawings of each sled dog and packhorse. This book takes the academic and historical information behind the expedition and reinterprets it for a young audience.

  • From Nobrow Press comes this stunning book -- twenty four artists take on seven pages each to tell their tales of the creation of everything.

    blog image Some draw on tales from ancient traditions, such as Norse or Ainu legends or a universal mother's womb of all things. Some illustrate mainly in stylised profiles, harking back to Egyptian tomb walls or Grecian friezes. Others mostly ignore previous versions and take more oblique or satirical stabs.

    Features contributions from artists such as Stuart Kolakovic, Ben Newman, Mike Bertino, Brecht Vandenbroucke, and Luke Pearson.

    Pull up a rock and gather round the flickering fire - the universe is about to be born again.

    We can't wait to get our hands on this one...
