Random House - The Imaginaries - Little Scraps of Larger Stories
Best-selling author/illustrator ofThe Wonderful Things You Will Be, Emily Winfield Martin, shares her “Imaginaries”: paintings from over the last ten years, captioned with one enigmatic sentence, designed to inspire.
From mermaids and giant flowers to magical robes and mysterious characters, this full-color collection of old and new art from Emily Winfield Martin will inspire the artist and writer in you! Each glorious image is given a mysterious or magical one-line caption–the beginning of a story, or maybe the middle–you imagine the rest.
The captions are hand-written on vintage scraps of paper, envelopes, postcards and more. Akin to the Chris van Allsburg book The Mysteries of Harris Burdick, The Imagina18.99ries is destined to become a cult classic in its own right.
The book is unjacketed with foil and a matte finish on the cover; a treasure to keep and display and pore over for years.
