So, what do I love most about Mister Finch? Perhaps it is his quiet working away in his studio, like a puppet maker. Perhaps it is the stories tied tight in the minds of his sleeping creatures. Perhaps it is the way he walks towards a darker dreaming but always with beauty. Perhaps it is his ability to give away nothing about himself while sharing not only his work but the work of people who make him smile. His generosity of mind and spirit. Perhaps. Swans, hares, foxes, dreaming, moths. We have much in common and yet so different. --Jackie Morris, Jackie Morris Blog "April 3, 2015 "
About the Author
Mister Finch, is an exquisite craftsman and textile artist living in Yorkshire England. Aside from a single art class he took years ago, Finch is entirely self-taught, having discovered his passion for sewing after dabbling in a number of different media. From ruffle-winged birds to glassy-eyed hares, Finch is known and loved around the world for his enchanting, fairytale-inspired creatures. He works alone in his cosy, plant-filled studio, sewing each inimitable piece by hand, not far from the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. A freelance writer and photographer, Justine Hand writes about life, art and design on her blog, designskool.net. She is also a contributing editor for Remodelista.com and Gardenista.com, where she covers emerging talent and New England style. The mother of two imaginative, young children (who often assist her in her creative work), she and her family split their time between Newton, MA and Cape Cod. Justine Hand is a New England native and historic house buff. She writes the design blog 'Design Skool,' founded on the belief that 'your home should reflect your story, your history, your heritage.' Justine lives in Newton where she is working to restore her own historic home.

The images and page layouts are beautiful. I only have one tiny gripe: someone needed to proofread a little bit more carefully! You won't notice this, because you'll be so swept away by Mister Finch's craftsmanship, but there are a few typos that the publisher should iron on in the next print run, e.g. "M name is Finch". Editorial errors aside though, I adore this book and I really hope he's going to publish more soon.
