This week we’re touring Scotland in our World Dolls Series of books.
There are twelve little books in the series. We’ve managed to get hold of them all, so we can do quite a comprehensive tour of Europe now.
Our doll guides for this trip are Andrew & Sheena – sporting their national costumes which they wear for high days & holidays (they dress down in jeans & T-shirt the rest of the week!)
Fabulous illustrations once more – this time the work of M. Russon from the Birmingham School of Design.
They’re very atmospheric with a distinct 1960s feel.
We love the colours in this book – subtle shades of green, ochre & blue with flashes of bright red.
Some illustrations are full of tiny detail, but they retain a simple, spare quality too.
We take in towns, harbours and the wonderful Scottish countryside.
We love the depiction of life on the croft.
Next week we’re heading off to Wales – hope you’ll join us!
