Magical Making with Isobel Knowles and Cat Rabbit…….

A while back my dear friend Isobel told me she was working on a book, using her amazing animation talents……(my thought not her words!) and every so often she would mention it again……now one of Isobel’s charms, is her total modesty, which means being blown away every time she shows me something new she has worked on…….and she works a lot! But seeing the book she has completed with Cat Rabbit has left me more blown away than ever before…… a little kid, these photographic story books were amongst my favourites….for some reason they seemed to be even more magical than illustrations, because there was the possibility of them being real….and these ladies with a lot of hard work and painstaking patience have sewed a whole new world I wouldn’t mind visiting soon…..let me not spoil the story by telling you what happens……why not buy a copy for a little someone you love or the kid in you? There is also a little kit to make your own little owls…..more adorabilty…..and for people with a touch of the lazies and fear of glue and scissors, they have an Etsy store too….I asked her what made her want to do this book and she answered……”The opportunity presented itself like the universe handing us a giant piece of chocolate cake. We couldn’t NOT make this book!”

For a slice of the cake, the launch will be on Wednesday, April 4th from 6-9pm at No Vacancy Project Space in the Federation Square Atrium.
Where there will also be a special exhibition of the sets used to create the illustrations in the book, from April 2 – 8 2012

Please Note All Melbourne People: The ladies will be running free Easter workshops on saturday 7th at 11 am and 2 pm, check for details. Children must be aged 5 or over and be able to use scissors and glue. There will be other events coming up throughout April and May including a reading at Outré gallery on Saturday 14th.
