“Five” Illustrated Book by Katriona Chapman

I was fortunate to acquire one of the few currently remaining copies of “Five” by Katriona Chapman. The beautifully crafted pencil sketches tell a fantasy tale emanating from someone’s daydream of five birds traversing exotic locations across the world. The images shown below are just some of the pictures contained in her book.

Katriona also does colour illustrations, although my personal preference is for her black-and-white work. This book, along with others, are published under her own imprint, Tomatito Press. Katriona’s rendering style reminds me of a US-based author and illustrator of children’s books, whose books I’ve collected over the years. I’ll blog about his work next week.
