The Illustrated Book of Sayings

Ella Frances Sanders


This is a beautifully designed book. Though it falls a little outside my usual review spectrum (it’s not a children’s book), it IS a gorgeously illustrated book. It’s quite fascinating as well, as it explains common sayings from around the world. Here are a couple of  examples.

Sanders did a beautiful job with the writing as well. Her explanations are descriptive and as illustrative as her artwork. This is a great little coffee table book and it makes a wonderful conversation piece, as there’s so much interesting information included.

The cover of this book is gorgeous as well. I’m a sucker for debossed text, and the watercolor design is lovely.


Disclaimer: I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
