Paper Cutting


Although it doesn't quite feel like fall just yet, I'm ready for apples and pumpkins to start sprinkling in. Today I was getting some groceries and all the fall treats were there! This book Apple by Nikki McClure celebrates the seasons beautifully.

This is a great book to sit down with young readers. It gives you the chance to sound out one word and enjoy the illustrations.

These illustrations were created by using black paper and cutting away with an X-acto knife. I like figuring out how all these fine lines are connected to the imagery when looking at the book.

This book was originally made by hand and promoted by Nikki McClure at local bookstores. It's wonderful seeing this idea have a second life.
