Books, books, books....

As always on our recent trip we found some great books. Given the state of NZ's dollar, and the 'weighty' issue of luggage on planes we did our best to limit our purchases - but we did bring home....

Birds by Jeffrey Fisher an Australian artist living in Paris. Jeffrey's bird illustrations are so gorgeous - we're tempted to have several framed!

Blackstock's Collections by Gregory L. Blackstock, an autistic and artistic savant from Seattle, Washington who creates visual lists of everything from wasps to hats to emergency vehicles to cabbages. The detail and information in each illustration is astounding - what a wonderful and extraordinary mind he must have!

Vintage French Interiors by Sebastien Siraudeau. A wonderfully inspiring book showcasing antique shops and flea markets in France.

And for our two unruly boys - How to Speak Politely and Why by Munro Leaf. A fantastic children's classic (from a series) that shows good manners and that treating others how you would like to be treated is timeless. Munro Leaf is also responsible for the fabulous book The Story of Ferdinand - a childhood favourite.
