back to school, sweet!

A week-long flurry of photoshoots and faculty follow-up. I'm eager to share the new Autumn additions to periwinklebloom (very soon!). The shoot was a hoot albeit exhausting, wrangling six small tots with big personalities. A warm thanks to my patient parents, to my ever-talented dear friend, Greg and to Andy for sharing his story-filled space.

Back to the books, a lovely illustrator discovered this summer here. Melissa Sweet brings tall tales to life in stained hues and whimsical characters. Her unique use of type and texture, layers and line quality offer delightful reading for parents and kiddos alike. A vast collection of beginner and back-to-school books here as well (scroll her book of the week list, wow). Enjoy!
