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.
I am literally in book heaven.
I bought three out of the five boxes. Here are my freebies.
