Swatch & the Butterfly Print
Julia Denos

"In a place where colors ran wild, there lived a girl who was wilder still. Her name was Swatch, and she was a colortamer."

This 13" x 19" autographed print is a vibrant color reproduction from children's book, Swatch, The Girl Who Loved Color by Julia Denos, published by Balzer + Bray (HarperCollins) 2016. It's printed directly from the final art file sent out to the publisher, on a textured watercolor paper that captures watercolor and ink strokes detail for detail. The image is true-to-book-scale, with white space for matting and framing. Pair this print with the book for the perfect gift for an artist, picture book-lover or child-at-heart!

Walking his dog at dusk, one boy catches glimpses of the lives around him in this lovely ode to autumn evenings, exploring your neighborhood, and coming home.

Before your city goes to sleep, you might head out for a walk, your dog at your side as you go out the door and into the almost-night. Anything can happen on such a walk: you might pass a cat, or a friend, or even an early raccoon. And as you go down your street and around the corner, the windows around you light up one by one until you are walking through a maze of paper lanterns, each one granting you a brief, glowing snapshot of your neighbors as families come together and folks settle in for the night. With a setting that feels both specific and universal and a story full of homages to The Snowy Day, Julia Denos and E. B. Goodale have created a singular book — at once about the idea of home and the magic of curiosity, but also about how a sense of safety and belonging is something to which every child is entitled.
