This is the third in my series of posts in preparation for my year of buying indie only in 2016. The last two weeks have seen me feature the work of And Other Stories and Atlantic Books, and this week is the turn of London based publisher Nobrow.
This week is particularly exciting for me for a few reasons; firstly Nobrow are publishers of art and illustration and as such their website is a beautiful place to explore, and secondly they have a children's imprint, Flying Eye Books. Particularly exciting as I've been looking for new awesome books for my kids for a while!
Nobrow was founded in 2008 by Sam Arthur and Alex Spiro, ex students of St Martins with the vision of producing ground-breaking art and narrative with environmental consciousness central to its vision. Until the middle of 2014 they also had a shop in Central London. Today you can purchase all of their books, stationery, including an impressive range of gift wrap, and other awesome stuff via their website.
Firstly some Flying Eye books I'm excited to read with the boys:
The Little Gardener by Emily Hughes
