I love Marc Martin's illustrations.
His previous three picture books have become some of my favourites - A Forest and The Curious Explorer's Illustrated Guide to Exotic Animals A - Z and Max.
I also follow Martin's Instagram account so that I can get my regular fix of his colourful view of life!
His latest picture book, A River, is a story about imagination, the environment & change.
Gentle, poetic words send us floating down the river. We glide by a city, through farmland, a jungle and eventually out to a stormy sea.
Each page is full of details & patterns and beautiful colour palettes.
I could pour over the pages for hours.
The front cover has been embossed which adds a lovely tactile element & extends the flowing, gliding sensation. I can't keep my fingers from running over each plant & letter.
Martin has, yet again, created another picture book for me to love!
