All Is Revealed
I'm so excited to be able to share the actual cover of Lost & Found. This simply would not have happened without your support, so thank you all, once again, for bringing the collection into the world.
Taken from Phoebe's illustration for Little Stupid, cover design by Mark Ecob. If that apple and saucer look familiar that's because they appeared in The Power Of 3 update, sitting by the Blackden fireside. This is a lovely element of Phoebe's illustrations: many of them feature real-world found objects and places that have personal resonance and have been translated into the landscape of the book.
I'm equally thrilled to share the news that Hugh Lupton has written the foreword. I have known Hugh since I was a child, when he brought his own stories to the Blackden chimney - a hugely formative experience that I wrote about in First Light. So there is a lovely circularity here, which is so true to the experience of being part of the Unbound Family.
The arrival of the cover does mean that we are now getting near to the closing of the supporters list and this month is the final chance for people to get their names in the back of the book. So please do share with anyone who you think might enjoy the tales. And if you are tempted to snap up a digital print or sign up to a Finding & Keeping Workshop now's the time to do it!
