In 2021 I completed a wordless artist book for my little granddaughter, who was about a year old at the time. I produced it by converting a discarded kid’s library book, using the same process I’ve used for similar books in the past.
Look here if you want to see more about how I make these books and to view one of my past books.
This particular volume does have a story, though. I had been working on it off and on for a long time and getting nowhere. Other projects kept coming along. One day I took it out to see about finishing it up and to consider what I might write to accompany the images. It struck me that it was fine just as it was, without words.
And I thought my granddaughter might like it when she is a little older, and she can make up stories to go with the pictures herself.
Like the content, the cover has no words. The book has no title. I guess it can be called whatever the reader wants.
Both are delightful images but I am especially drawn to the trees and the birds.
Thank you. I also like the birds. I feel I could do this kind of picture over and over because it gives me such a good feeling to imagine being there.
LOVE these a lot!
Thank you. I think this is one of my favorite page spreads in this book.
Cool pages, still jet lagged so no stories popping from my mind!
