Robert Macfarlane & Jackie Morris-The Lost Words, Hardback book
Signed by the Artist!
With gorgeous hand-painted illustrations by Jackie Morris (Pembrokeshire resident and customer of West of Wales Art Supplies, don't you know) and acrostic spell-poems by award-winning writer Robert Macfarlane, this enchanting book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages.
The Lost Words stands against the disappearance of wild childhood, all over the country, there are words of the natural world vanishing from children's lives. Words like - Dandelion, Otter, Bramble and Acorn, all vanishing, the rich landscape of wild imagination and wild play is rapidly fading from our children's minds.
