Would love to do a one off SAFC book looking like this.

I read my daughter the book of Brothers Grimm Stories at bed time every night. They are magical, some of them are outright batshit too but that’s a plus, we’ll generally end up laughing like a drain at them!

The Hob Stories with illustrations by Patrick Benson.
Had them as a bairn and bought an anthology edition a couple of years ago. Absolutely wonderful - dark but it fires the imagination something chronic.

Also, you might be interested in The Mysteries of Harris Burdick.

The story goes that the author dropped a load of illustrations in to his publisher from a book he was working on and then mysteriously vanished, leaving only the illustrations with captions. It's fascinating.

i hear about this a lot, what exactly is the premise?
It's just a few sayings and a short story but beautifully illustrated and thought provoking.

In hardback and put together so it feels a little special.

Nothing mind blowing but just nice


Type of book a lass would give to another lass
