I’m a sucker for illustrated books. I really, really am. Books that you don’t have to read from front to back are also my jam. There’s something so inviting about the type of interaction they encourage. Flip through, stop on a page, read it. Magic.
I was recently given a sneak peak into Stephanie Simmons’ latest work, All’s Fair in Love & Wardrobe. Illustrated by the extremely talented Malia Carter, when I saw the cover, I was hooked. Simmons’ cheeky voice combined with Carter’s stunning illustrations make for a perfect pairing, and while some readers will want to read this book front to back in total enjoyment, it can also work great as a coffee table book for those who like to flip. Filled with 121 rules and an assortment of water colors you won’t be able to take your eyes off of, this book is a work of editorial art. Nicely done, ladies.
Here are some sneak peaks at some of my favorite illustrations from All’s Fair in Love & Wardrobe. Be sure to check it out on Amazon or at Barnes & Noble!
