Almost a year to the day from when we originally launched our Style Squad, we are very proud to share the release of our first illustrated book!
Alex our Peacock is naturally at the front of the queue, and we are thrilled to share our original story behind this beautiful animal.
As Flossie is currently working on a new "project" (a.k.a. her new daughter!) we approached Chris Millard to work on the internal illustrations with us, as we have always liked his style (something anyone who visits our home will spot!)
Rob wrote the original story based on ideas of how we feel "being a peacock" when we are smartly dressed, and research about the real life animal. Alex is a little shy of the limelight to begin with but learns to use his colour feathers to build his confidence.
The 24 page book is 15cm square, inspired by the Mr Men and Little Miss sized books and features 5 full page illustrations and other small illustrations by Chris throughout.
Each book is just £6 (plus P&P) and suitable for age 3+.
The rest of the Style Squad will follow during the year.
You can find our new book as well as cards, badges, artwork and t-shirts featuring the original artwork from Flossie available to buy here
You can buy from us in person at Love Reigate Tunnel Market on Saturday 23rd April, or at our first Curated by Dapper & Suave Market at Dorking Halls on Sunday 15th May.
Don't forget to sign up to our mailing list to stay up to date.
We hope you enjoy!
