Accordion Book Otter by Jackie Morris
A delightful, pocket-sized book which opens into a concertina of images and words by Jackie Morris. One side is filled with beautiful watercolour images of an otter: sometimes in motion, sometimes at rest. The other is filled with text – poems, descriptions, invocations – inspired by the same animal. Together they work as spells to summon the animal’s spirit.
Jackie Morris has painted them using antique watercolours, some from boxes which hadn’t been opened for over 150 years, woken from their slumber with a single drop of water.
Presented with a paper band to keep the book together. Would make a great gift.
