Teach your children about the animals of the forest with this fun and educational book. Five animals - a brown bear, wolf, squirrel, otter and deer - are explored through rhyme, pictures and pull-out cards to construct into 3D figures. With two spreads dedicated to each animal, adults will be able to read the short playful rhyme on each spread to children and look at the bright illustrations to teach them about their habits and environment. The inside of the dust jacket is printed full colour with a graphical representation of the animals' environment.
Aubrey Vincent Beardsley (1872-98), an English illustrator, a decadent and rebellious fin de siecle dandy had a lasting impact on Art Nouveau. In just a few years he created a unique lexicon of carnal knowledge in pen and ink and, wielding his remarkable graphic talent like a scalpel, sliced through the hypocrisy of Victorian society. In 1894 he became the rage with the publication of his illustrations to the English version of Oscar Wilde’s Salome and the appearance of the first issue of The Yellow Book, a quarterly periodical of which he was art editor. Beardsley's work is looked at alongside the work of contemporaries such as Oscar Wilde, Max Beerbohm and W.B. Yeats and against the backdrop of the artistic, literary and social life of fin-de-siecle London, Dieppe and Paris. In spite of his ill health and early death due at 25 due to tuberculosis, Beardsley’s output was prodigious.
