While recently browsing a bookshop in Europe, I encountered 2 books created by German illustrator Sybille Schenker. (Don’t you find that the mainland European bookshops just seem to have better quality books all round, but especially children’s books?). Now, these are no ordinary, garden variety paper cut illustrations. The cutouts are layered over a background page of limited colour palette of further silhouettes as well as textures. The two books are Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel. They’re both available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble at very reasonable prices.
