    A Lion in Paris
    R260.00 inc. VAT

    One day, a huge lion arrived in Paris…

    A Lion in Paris is widely regarded as the most accomplished book by multi-award-winning children’s author/illustrator Beatrice Alemagna. It tells the story of a lion who, bored by his rural life in the savanna, seeks excitement and opportunity in the City of Light. Upon arriving in Paris, the lion is disappointed to find that despite his size, people barely pay attention to him, not even when he lets out a ferocious roar on the busy underground Métro.
    Revealing the sights and sounds of Paris from Montmartre to the Eiffel Tower, this beautifully illustrated book successfully conveys the experience of being a stranger in a new city and the process of understanding one’s own identity.

    Album Art: New Music Graphics
    R420.00 inc. VAT

    We find ourselves square in the middle of one of the greatest periods in music packaging.

    The designers collected here are at the forefront of this movement. Some have been working in the music industry for decades, while others are fresh on the scene. They all share a desire to elevate the simple record cover and the wrapping that surrounds these products into something more, something special, something unique, something memorable.

    Bruegel
    R975.00 inc. VAT

    Pieter Bruegel the Elder (died 1569) has always been acknowledged as one of the greatest and most influential artists in the history of the Netherlands. His fame began to spread in the course of his short life and the popularity of his work continued to rise during the centuries following his death in 1569. It is all the more astonishing, therefore, that we know so very little about the artist’s life, his training, his opinions on art and society, and his doings and whereabouts during his artistic career of just seventeen years.
