Introduce little ones to the colors black and white in this bold and graphic board book by illustrator and textile designer Jane Foster. In this beautiful and sophisticated black and white board book, children will be introduced to bold, black and white images, such as penguins, pandas, zebras, polar bears, and more! Praise for Jane Foster’s ABC and Jane Foster’s 123: “Both titles are stunningly simple, but Foster is able to create some truly arresting images here, making both books pleasurable repeat reads. A fetching and effective introduction to the world of numbers.” —Starred Kirkus Review “It’s a book that style-minded parents and kids can appreciate equally.” — Starred Publisher’s Weekly Review “This unusually attractive counting board book from the British illustrator and textile designer Jane Foster shows off her style in a way that will catch - and hold - the eye of grown-ups and younger children alike.” —New York Times Children’s Board Book roundup review
The illustration style is just so cute, but there’s not a ton of substance here and since this is a “black and white” book, I’d expect more of the subjects of each page to actually be black and white, not just black and white renditions of “wiggly caterpillar”s and “lovely flowers”.
I’m an illustrator, author and textile designer living in South Devon with my partner and daughter.
I illustrate, screen print, sew and write books. I love bold, happy designs that appeal to children and adults alike. My purpose in life is to bring joy into other people’s lives by creating happy illustrations for children’s books, wall art, mugs and other products. I spend much of my time illustrating books and working on licensing designs but I also have a small range of products that I create for my web shop - these are often from very small editions or ‘one off’ items that I sell to loyal customers around the world. I design and make every item in my shop. (Bio via janefoster.co.uk)
