- “I have always loved old things. Especially old, worn, mended things that show traces of hands and hearts and minds long gone, things that tell stories,” writes two-time Caldecott medalist Sophie Blackall.
- Farmhouse tells the story of a nineteenth century crumbling dairy farm, purchased by the author and her family. Through lyrical, rhyming text and stunning mixed-media illustrations featuring Chinese ink, watercolor, gouache, colored pencil and collaged materials salvaged from the house itself, Blackall weaves the story of the home’s past, right up until the day she entered its front door.
- The gorgeous, whimsical illustrations are filled with some of our very favorite things: patchwork quilts, antique clothing, attics filled with ironstone and painted furniture, tramp art frames, braided rag rugs, cupboards brimming with vintage tableware, baskets, bird’s nests, brass keys. This is truly a feast for the eyes, sure to be beloved by old and young readers alike.
- This is a newly printed book, multiples are available.
