INSPIRATION :: Gorgeous Art in Oliver Jeffers’ Newest Book

It’s so easy to get lost inside the wonderful world of Oliver Jeffers. The latest book from the talented Irish illustrator is due out in November, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Doesn’t the beautiful art just draw you in? He often sells prints and apps which correspond with his books, too, which I think is very clever.

(Oh, and remember when this trailer of his Lost and Found book-turned-film was making the rounds a year or so ago? So beautiful!)
