First Song is a gorgeous illustrated poem by artist Aijung Kim. This small artist book is packed full of visual delight! I enjoyed it very much, but was even more struck by Aijung’s website, as all of her artwork, including paintings, prints, sculpture, and her artist books are amazing. Her website design is also one of the best I’ve seen in a long time! Check it out at www.aijungkim.com or visit her shop.
Birch is a collection of drawings by Justin Madson (from neighboring Oshkosh, WI no less). His drawings are fun, unique, and cohesive. I happen to love his characters! He also sells original art, comics, and prints. Visit http://www.justmadbooks.com/ and/or his shop.
Obsolete is a wonderful book of poems that is intriguing to read. The book is very professionally done, an all-around delight! Visit Katie’s website, http://www.thelalatheory.com/!
