Today lets look at something interesting, Gulliver’s New Travels by James Gulliver Hancock. I won this book from a giveaway by Amelia’s Magazine, which is amazing since I never win anything. Since then I’ve been leafing through it, trying to decide which picture to do and still haven’t decided, loads of cool images here.
This is a fun book, sort of kind of reminds me of Lizzie Mary Cullens books a tad bit, for the fun factor, plus this too has a distinct style you would recognize anywhere later.
The paper is thick and nice, images on both sides. I suppose it could take a bit of water carefully but not liberal use. However it’s great for pencils, just the right kind of paper, smooth and beautiful. Pavilion Books also publishes Millie Marotta’s books, the paper seems to be the same to me.
I really like the cover as well, the brown with silver, it looks gorgeous.
Overall this is a wonderful book, if you like the style, do get it, you’ll love it. Hopefully I’ll manage to pick a picture at some point 😀 I keep going back and forth between some of the images. It took me half a year to pick my first from Blomstermandala by Maria Trolle so as you can probably tell, picking my next project is not an easy task for me.
