Inspiring Young Readers
An Interview With Jackie Morris
The Letterpress Project has asked authors and illustrators to think about what has inspired them as artists, what their favourite books are and how they relate to their audience - we've also asked them if they themselves are book collectors.
We are thrilled to present an exclusive interview with the author, illustrator and artist, Jackie Morris. Originally born in Birmingham but now living in Wales, by way of a stay in Evesham, Jackie's work is influenced by her love of the natural world and she has an enthusiastic audience amonst children, young readers and adults alike. She has illustrated a wide range of books written by well-loved contemporary authors as well as reworking age-old myths and legends. Her most recent book - the truly spectacular The Quiet Music of Gently Falling Snow - is reviewed elsewhere on this site - click this link to see it.
