The prettiest book

A couple of weeks ago it was my mums birthday and I bought her a book, 'Tikken tegen de maan'. Before I wrapped it, I read it myself and I found out how amazing this book is. I knew I had to show you because I'm sure most of you will love it, so I quickly took some pictures.

It is a collection of Dutch and Flemish poetry for children selected by Joke van Leeuwen (Dutch author, illustrator and performer). The poems are written by (relatively) well-known poets, and great on their own, but what I love about this book is that the publisher has asked starting talented -but not so well known- Dutch and Belgium illustrators to illustrate this book. When I see a book like this I'm so glad there are still small independent publishers like Ons Erfdeel.



Each spread is definitely worth framing, and there are 50! Needless to say, I had a hard time, giving this beauty away...

The poetry are published by (relatively) well-known romantics, and excellent on their own, but what I really like about this publication is that the creator has requested beginning skilled -but not so well known- Nederlander and The country illustrators to show you this publication.
