the wonderful world of oliver jeffers.

If you haven’t read the stories of Oliver Jeffers then you should begin at once. He is a children’s book writer, and his stories are sweet, poignant and hilarious (my favourite, Stuck, is laugh-out-loud funny, and my three-year-old doesn’t mind it, either..). The illustrations are just beautiful, too – spare in detail, rich in context.

Now I have discovered (via the always wonderful French by Design blog), his dipped paintings. And now I’m crazy about them, too.

    I actually came across his dipped paintings first and then found out he’s also a children’s book author. I have to find out if his stories were translated into german. His dipped paintings are genius – such a simple idea, and so strong!
