What People are Saying About This
"Walter de la Mare's quiet poem, Snow , about the emptiness of a white landscape, has contrasting illustrations by Carolina Rabei full of the busyness of Christmas, depicted in nostalgic screen prints with a limited, muted palette. The storytelling is in the pictures, the words a background, like snow falling outside a festive room. Sunday Times (UK)
