[BHE 176] Little Gestalten Books and Book Loot from the SG Book Deal Warehouse Sale (Part 1 of 2)

BHE

Myra here.

Every Sunday we are excited to share the books that have found their way into our hands through covert or legitimate means.

Little Gestalten Books

Just this week, I received these books for review from Little Gestalten. And they are absolutely glorious. I can not wait to read them.

Fischer & Labrune The Night Watchman, and The Small World of Paper Toys by Gerard Lo Monaco.

Here are preview pages from the pop-up book The Small World of Paper Toys:

The Night Watchman gave me goosebumps. This seems like a book to embrace in the middle of the night.

See? See what I mean?

Freebies from the SG Book Deal Sale

I have been meaning to share my bookloot with you from the very recent SG Book Deal Warehouse Sale which I announced several weeks back. I was not able to post my loot as I had to leave for Munich the very same evening I got my boxes of books. I only had the chance to sort them when I arrived back here in Singapore during the middle of August, hence this much delayed posting.

I also received a few freebies from the Warehouse Sale. Allow me to post those first.
