Gift books non-fiction may sound an odd combination. Usually most people associate pop-up books and lift-the-flap books with the gift book market, but there are now many pop-up and lift-the-flap reference books for children.
Gift books non-fiction: Earlier this year I illustrated four non-fiction, lift-the-flap books covering, the human body, horses and ponies, Castles and Knights, and lastly DINOSAURS! There are meant to be twenty more, but all has gone quite with the publisher for now, and so it's case of being patient and hoping that they will go ahead with the whole series. I hope they do because I want to the Egyptians, the Vikings, and Pirates of course! They are aimed at five to seven year olds, and so have elements of fun about them - hence the lift-the-flap elements.
Anyway, here is some illustrations from the Castles and Knights book. If you want to see more check out my other blog posts and my non-fiction portfolio, by clicking on non-fiction above.
Sorry about how murky these look, but it is blogspot not me! They seem to be uploading images and then making them look grey and sludgy!
