The smallest book dummy ever

I was really lucky to be able to interview Viviane Schwarz yesterday, and while I’m editing and tweaking all the recording, I thought I’d post a picture of one of the amazing things I saw in her studio. Her sketchbooks are stunning – a real inspiration to me and I imagine anyone who sees them – and this is a dummy of There are Cats in this Book. And as you can see, it’s the tiniest, most perfect little thing ever.

  • How can she work so small! How funny, I stood in a book shop reading ‘There are Cats In This Book’ at Tales On Moon Lane, yesterday. I like the concept. There are not many books that encourage kids to read a picture book quickly. You are lucky and I’ll listen out for the interview.

  • Viviane actually made this to a dummy to convince the American Publishers. It clearly worked! It was fully working model too. Just brilliant
