Chronicle Books: Items I have my eye on

chronicle books

Ever since I saw it at the Chronicle Books HQ last summer in San Francisco, I’ve been thinking about this wordless book, The Wave by Suzy Lee . Here’s a video of the book. I have always been a lover of children’s books and a believer in the idea that if one is really good it’s timeless and ageless. My mom has saved my books and I can’t wait to pore over them again before giving them to my baby. They are part of the reason I love to teach art and that I am also an illustrator.

I also have my eye on some of these fabulous stationery sets. Oh Chronicle you are amazing!:

  1. Dutch Door (b’day book and cards/envelopes). I love Dutch Door. Here’s another post I did about them
  2. Flock notecards (beautiful black cards). Love her style. by Eleanor Grosch
  3. Little Greetings (b’days, thank yous and quick hellos). Perfect! by Kristen Hewitt
  4. Sukie (correspondence cards). I need these.

I hope you all have a really spectacular weekend. See if you can find a children’s book that makes you remember what it was like when you were little. XO.
