The Land of Neverbelieve…

0763660213This is one of those gorgeous books (published by Walker Books) that is purporting to be ‘just’ a children’s book but really is just a delight for anyone, of any age.

World-renowned artist Norman Messenger illustrates the fantastical flora & fauna of Neverbelieve, an island he says he just stumbled upon. It is so cleverly and beautifully illustrated: it is like a notebook of curiosities and wonders, a wunderkammer collected by a 17th or 18th century explorer, with several gatefold pages to open and explore for yourself. Here is a picture of the island itself:
