Bliain na nAmhran Book Cover

Book Cover illustrated by Tarsila Kruse.

Bliain na nAmhrán (Year of Song). Songs and Rhymes of four seasons. Written by Tadhg Mac Dhonnagáin and illustrated by Tarsila Kruse, Christina O Donovan, Brian Fitzgerald and myself (Jennifer Farley). Published by Futa Fata.

Each illustrator was responsible for creating pictures for songs and rhymes for a different season. I made the pictures for winter. Some of which you can see below. This was a wonderful project to work on and the resulting collaborative book is beautiful.

The book is available to buy in good bookshops and also from the Futa Fata website here.
