On Friday I received a parcel from the postman, a nice brown box and inside, some of my very favourite things, books :) these particular books were copies of Peter Pan by J.M.Barrie, a popup book published by Tango Books and illustrated by me... :)

It is always exciting to finally meet the end product of something you've illustrated, and I have taken some photo's to share with you. This was not easy to photograph, being fairly intricate illustrations on a slightly glossy flat surface, so I hope you can see the details!

Last year I also illustrated The Wizard of Oz popup book in the same series, and Peter Pan has the same format, with a 3 dimensional cut out cover illustration, abridged text from the original by J.M.Barrie with detailed colour illustrations throughout and 4 illustrated pop up scenes, each of which opens up like a tiny theatre.

I have only photographed the inside of two of the pop ups here as I've yet to take a clear photo of the remaining two! both of which are set inside the nursery...

Peter Pan is published by Tango Books and illustrated by Nicola L Robinson, it is available now from all the usual places, and you can of course order it into your favourite local bookshop too. (I would encourage you to do so!) It would make a lovely Christmas present.
