"This unusually attractive counting board book from the British illustrator and textile designer Jane Foster shows off her style in a way that will catch - and hold - the eye of grown-ups and younger children alike." -New York Times Children's Board Book roundup review
Jane Foster is a designer and illustrator whose work in screen printing has gained her wide acclaim. Her style is heavily influenced by Scandinavian trends with a nod to the 1950s and 60s. Appealing to adults and children alike, her work is bold, colourful and happy in its execution. Jane also screen prints fabric to make toys, cushions, bags and toy kits. Her range of stylish designs is much more than that though and you can accessorise your home with ceramics, glassware and kitchen textiles as well.
Jane lives near the coast in Devon in a vintage-inspired home with her partner and daughter.
If, like me, you are unabashedly selfish and get your children's books according to what you favour as an adult blessed, if not with wealth, at least with taste (plus a low boredom threshold) as opposed to the tedious ubiquity the global merchandisers would prefer you to buy your babies' minds with (Peppa Pig, I'm looking at you), then Jane Foster has to be your go-to in board book land.
