LuzInterruptus, an anonymous light artists collective, demonstrates the power of the written word in their latest installment, “Light vs. Traffic”. In this symbolic gesture, “literature took control of the streets and became the conquerer of the public space”. This road of books is a great reminder that our stories are part of an important journey that can send a powerful message. 

Breathtaking.

If you have a small child, or if you’re friends with a small child’s grown ups and you’re looking for a lovely gift, may I recommend The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit?
Written by Emma Thompson (and gleefully and expressively read by her on the enclosed cd), and illustrated in soft-focus watercolor by Eleanor Taylor, this charming little book is one I’m thrilled to add to the growing library of books for Baby Tomes.
