Lucy and the Anvil, by Adam Kline and Brian Taylor
I backed this project on Kickstarter earlier this year, and am thrilled for these guys on their results. Top notch eye-candy. That purple and orange sunset? Swoonworthy.It’s offbeat. It’s kooky. Lucy loves this anvil, even though it’s not very good at seesawing or sledding. I mean, it’s…an anvil. This book is a friendship story, a love story, and a story about what you’re not very good at. Not being good at some things leaves you lots of room to be good at the most important things.
This interview with the guys is a fascinating read and shows a handful of images from the book. The cover more than hints at their similarities after all: check out Lucy’s pigtails, perfectly mirroring the anvil’s mighty arms. Thrilled with my copy!
