Moleskine journal in the Observer New Review

Mmm I love the smell of newsprint on a Sunday afternoon…

Lovely surprise in the  Observer ‘New Review’ newspaper today, page 7, a feature about Moleskine journal art. A friend Milena kindly informed me that one of my pieces is included. This journal based on the poem  Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti is still for sale! The Victorian poem is one of my all time favourites, and it has inspired a great portion of my illustration work from my degree course onwards.

The laptop journal pictured is immense!

Detail image from my journal:

Excerpt from the poem:

“Evening by evening
Among the brookside rushes,
Laura bowed her head to hear,
Lizzie veiled her blushes:
Crouching close together
In the cooling weather,
With clasping arms and cautioning lips,
With tingling cheeks and finger-tips.
“Lie close,” Laura said,
Pricking up her golden head:
We must not look at goblin men,
We must not buy their fruits:
Who knows upon what soil they fed
Their hungry thirsty roots?”

I present one-of-a-kind Moleskine cahier journals for sale in my Etsy shop and in the Moleskine Artist Marketplace. You can view a selection of my recent journals in my Facebook album.
