Illustrated Tales: Emma SanCartier

As a new mother, I’m stocking up on my favorite books from my childhood for my little one. When I came across Emma SanCartier’s shop, Esan01, I thought her illustrations would be a perfect addition to a child’s library. “Inspired by nature and stories from mythology and fairytales” this children’s book illustrator captures classics in her own special way. Wouldn’t this set of Birds in Fables look charming in a home library?
