I love you Mr Ryan

I have to interrupt my blogging schedule to tell you about what the wonderful postman delivered this morning. I completely forgot I had ordered this book by the wonderful Mister Rob Ryan, which arrived this morning alongside the tile I bought from his etsy shop a couple of days ago. He is a genius and I just can't wait to sit down later and have a real good look through the book. I first saw his work when he did the Liberty windows a few christmases ago. I ove the bittersweetness of his images. The book is a gem, I particularly like the way the images have shadows, it makes you just want to touch each page. What a star! He has made my day.

See you tomorrow! xxx
Edit: Having read this book rather than flicking I realised it a magical story of love and loneliness and dreams. Everyone should own this book. I wonder if it is autobiographical. I simply love it!

I love him too :)
Is it a tile or is it enamel?

Its on a standard tile, so would fit into a bathroom or kitchen wall nicely. Honestly add to your magazine buying week and get the book you will not be disappointed.

Thankyou for telling me about him. The book looks beautiful. Isn't it great when you get a lovely surprise, through the letterbox, that you had forgotten all about?
