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.

Latin American jewellery designer, Fernanda Sibilia, is passionate about experimentation. Inspired by modern and historical metal smith practice, not to mention Latin American art, she employs new techniques to manipulate bronze, copper and alpaca into rainbow-like colours and combinations. Working alongside ten artisans to create hand-made jewellery, Sibilia’s work is research-driven, referring to Latin America’s architecture, visual culture and jewellery design.
The influence of Latin American decorative art and visual culture is evident, though never literal, in the work of Argentinian designer Fernanda Sibilia. Pieces are infused with both mid-century modern and Pre-Columbian inspiration.
Research and experimentation come together in her Buenos Aires studio, where she manipulates bronze, copper and alpaca (a silver-coloured alloy), creating bold colours and textures through patination.
