First finished copy of Cinderella arrived by courier today!
Its always really exciting to see the finished book. For this book I did research in Early Printed Books in Trinity College. I was inspired by Books of Hours: I made sketches from original 16th Century manuscripts in the reading room. The hats, costumes and settings were inspired from original 16th century books. Here is a sketch from one of my notebooks that shows the early outfit that inspired the wicked stepmother's. Cinderella will be published in September by Walker Books and Candlewick Press in the US.
