Pattern Design and Illustration Admiration - Sanna Annukka

It was my birthday recently and as a birthday treat to myself I purchased a couple of books based on two stories by Hans Christian Andersen and illustrated by one of my favourite designers, Sanna Annukka.  Take a look at the previous link to her website to see more of her work.

I've been an admirer of Sanna Annukka's work for a few years now, it really is beautiful, I love how she incorporates pattern and colour into her work and the clean, graphic style she has that reminds me so much of some of the illustrations from children's books I had when I was little.
The two books, The Fir Tree and The Snow Queen really are a delight.  Not only are the stories by Hans Christian Andersen lovely to read but the illustrations are enchanting.
Take a look below at a peek inside the books, to see more of each book follow the links above to the Amazon.co.uk listings where a preview of the beginning of each book is available.
