print and pattern favourite sanna annukka has illustrated a new version of hans chrisitian andersen's 'the fir tree'. this lovely cloth bound book was published by hutchinson on 18th october and is a must for all illustration fans. here is what sanna herself had to say about the project - "it has been a real pleasure to finally achieve this and an honour for it to be one of hans christian andersen's stories.it was fun to get lost in his world but also a pressure to do justice to his story.'the fir tree' brims with lovely details to illustrate so there was plenty of inspiration there for me. the hardest part was getting so many illustrations ready in a short space of time, a good exercise for an illustrator who is prone to spending months on just one illustration!”. get your copy now fromamazon ukor amazon usa.
