Exquisite Corpse.

Ah, what a week. No real reason I didn't get around to posting other than a sort of vacuum of a week in the sense that we did very little except draw in to ourselves, making the house warm, nesting ourselves for winter. Any precious time I got at the sewing machine was spent making things like boring curtains, whilst a half made pile of other more desirable doings lay on the table, drawing my eye again and again. This week, I promise myself.

One thing that did brighten our week though was the arrival in the post of a parcel from Buenos Aires (along with the latest Pedlars catalogue, oh yes!) which included an early birthday present for me!

The thing that was immediately fought over was this stunning book. An Exquisite Corpse (favourite game no.1 in this house) book of animals. The illustrations are just beautiful.

The pages are in three parts and by turning them individually you can create amazing creatures.

Or you can view them as a whole. They truly are beautiful. 

Thanks so much Marta and Sam!

What a gorgeous book! We love to play a similar game, but with far less lovely images. Those illustrations are exquisite.
