Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This hand-picked collection of classic nursery rhymes, all delicately and painstakingly illustrated by Salley Mavor, who is reknown for her incredibly detailed fabric and cloth scenes.

It took Mavor ten years to develop her own fabric relief technique to a level where she felt comfortable even considering illustrating a book. Now, Mavor embroiders and sews illustrations, each scene taking nearly a month to complete. In this book, Mavor renders a new and visionary nursery rhyme world with precision and intricacy for many a generation to treasure for years and years to come.

Review:

"Rarely have classic childhood verses been depicted with so much care and detail--and fabric. Loosely organizing the rhymes over the course of the day, starting with morning themes and closing with bedtime rhymes, Mavor creates a miniature world using wool felt, various stitching techniques, and found materials like acorn caps and seashells. Tiny ducks follow Jack and Jill's journey up and down the hill, while the rocking cradle in 'Hush-a-bye, baby' is a walnut shell. Mavor's intricate and colorfully embroidered work of art makes even the best-known childhood poems feel special and new again. Up to age 3. (Sept.)"

Synopsis:

Mavor offers a fresh take on classic nursery rhymes with her signature style of fabric relief illustration in this intricately crafted collection. Full color.
