The Lost Words (Hamish Hamilton) by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris is set to be one of the outstanding illustrated books of 2017.
A selection of the lost words and their illustrations have been chosen from the book for release as a set of 20 large boxed postcards.
Jackie Morris s stunning original artwork is accompanied by extracts from Robert Macfarlane s lyrical acrostic poems on the reverse, reproduced exclusively as postcards by Graffeg.
The text and image pairings seek to re-establish a range of words, such as acorn and kingfisher , into the vocabulary of children, at a time when our understanding and teaching of the natural world can be seen to be diminishing.
An enriching and beautifully presented item for both children and adults, supplied in a gift box.
