|My coloured version of one of my illustrations from 'Words from the Road'|
I self published my first book 'Words from the Road' in 2014. This book is full of romany words and their meanings alongside my black and white illustrations. I've been told that they are great for colouring in. The wonderful Peter Ingram helped me enormously with the correct lingo.
Once I'd finished I set about illustrating my second book 'Words from the Canal'.
Of course I found it quite magical but it would have been a very different story years ago for families living and working these boats.
|Words from the Canal|
I have now published this book ' Words from the Canal'. Once you've read it you will know that I could have called it 'Words from the Cut' and my first book could have been called 'Words from the Drom'. My third book is under way....fingers crossed it will be ready to publish by the end of the year. If you do purchase them, I hope you enjoy them and perhaps add some of the words to your own vocabulary...oh and if you like colouring in...then I'd love to see what you have created.
Both books are available to purchase from my bookshop on Blurb http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/7048207-words-from-the-canal
Books and cards are also available via The Bothy Shop
