Richly Allusive

Guardian Unlimited Books | Review | Running with wolves

A lot of children's illustrators today grab your attention with the speed and economy of their style, but Angela Barrett approaches things very differently. There is a stillness and a quiet atmospheric intensity to her illustrations which appeal across a wide range of understanding. She doesn't simplify things - on the contrary, she both assumes and respects the intelligence of her readers - and her richly allusive work, full of detail and symbolism, invites and rewards as much time and investigation as you care to give it.

So begins Joanna Carey's excellent feature on the illustrator Angela Barrett (in The Guardian).

Highly Recommended
