I´m having a lot of fun looking at the illustrations “Cuando Verónica teje” (which translates as “When Verónica knits”), from Valeria Cis, published by Primera Sudamericana. My appreciation for knitting and its possibilities is quite obvious by now, I believe, and that´s probably why I enjoy so much the fact that it can be seen as more than “a grandma thing”. A children´s book with a sheep knitting? Love it!
The illustrations are very beautiful and expressive as well as the writing (both by Valeria Cis) and the only thing missing in this book is a nice edition. The cover is soft, the book itself is quite small in format (23cm x 15,5cm), considering that it is a children´s book, of course. It isn´t an inviting object – but it is a lovely work. Congratulations to the author, not so much to congratulate on the publisher´s side, though.
(From the same author, “Diez excusas para no comer vegetales”, also very beautifully written and illustrated, belonging to the same collection – “Puercoespín” – but, weirdly enough, with a different format.)
There are some more posts about books coming up. In the meantime, have a nice weekend everyone! It will be a long weekend here, due to a national holiday on Monday, so regular posting will resume on Tuesday.
Para los Argentinos: feliz día de la Patria! (eso fue editado para que quede totalmente argentinizado. De todas formas: feliz 25 de Mayo!)
