I really do wish dA wouldn't restrict title lengths...
Front Jacket of The Night Before Christmas
, by Clement C. Moore, published by Walker Books, 2007 .
You can see two views of the pop-up at the end of the book here: [link]
. I'm afraid they're not very large views, but I don't think I can take a better picture myself. There's so little light...
The original silhouettes were drawn in black ink and gouache.
A few other illustrations from the book are here:[link][link][link]
This book (my fourth) has done so well, completely to my astonishment. There are three co-editions: US, published by Candlewick Press; French, published by Editions Milan; and Japanese (I'm afraid I don't know the publisher's name for this...) The Golden Treasury Bookshop in Southwest London even reproduced the silhouettes for their window display last year: [link]
This was also the first book I've illustrated to have earned me royalties. It was all quite bewildering...
Merry Christmas, all!
