Book Description

Explore different celebrations from across the globe through fun and beautiful illustrations

About the Author

I was born in a small village in Leicestershire on a snowy winters morning in the year of '85. Ever since I have known, I have always loved to draw. I was told that from a young age, I used to always put eyelashes on the characters I drew. This became one of my distinct quirks and has stuck with me ever since! As a child, I used to create paper houses and shops and I would play for hours in these imaginary worlds, creating little stories and acting them out. I would say this is where my love for illustration started, and from then I continued to study the 'arts' at school and went on to graduate at Loughborough University with a degree in Illustration. I work from home, in a lovely house with a beautiful spacious garden. The garden is full of greenery and flowers and the birds are always singing. We have two bunny rabbits named Hubert and Esme, they are quite some characters! I am fascinated with people and animals and turning them into characters... I love to add patterns and details to clothing, add fun hairstyles, hats, glasses and lots of other accessories! Everything always starts off as a sketch and then I scan in the sketches and painted textures and work in Photoshop to add colour to my illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars A feast for the eyes
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 June 2019
Now and then a real gem comes along, and, for me, this is one.
I have loved going through the pages of this colourful, informative book, with cheery illustrations created by the talented author, Katy Halford, as noted on the very last page (last image below refers).

The LOOK INSIDE above, along with the current stock images, give a glimpse of the treats between the colourful, thick hardboard covers, the bright red from the dragon following through to the inside cover pages, back & front.

Measuring around 24.5 cm square x 1 cm, there are 48 quality (numbered) shiny pages within.
The CONTENTS LIST is also included in LOOK INSIDE, at the time of writing (first image below refers).

Starting with 'NEW YEAR' and finishing with 'THE CHRISTMAS SEASON', each double page spread has four short but informative paragraphs, in an unusual but reasonable sized, black font.
