The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris, published by Hamish Hamilton (Penguin Random House UK), is set to be one of the most outstanding illustrated books of 2017. In this postcard pack you will find Jackie Morris’s stunning artwork accompanied by extracts from Robert Macfarlane’s lyrical acrostic poems on the reverse. Beautifully presented in a gift box, this pack of postcards would make a wonderful gift for both children and adults.
The text and image pairings seek to re-establish a range of words into the vocabulary of children, at a time when our understanding and teaching of the natural world can be seen to be diminishing.
Box contains 20 postcards, each featuring a different illustration and lines of poetry.
