currently on display in the foyer of The Sir Kenneth Green Library in Manchester in an exhibition of garden themed illustrated books called "Flower Show".
19 May - 19 June 2015
Foyer, Sir Kenneth Green Library
The opening of RHS Chelsea marks the beginning of a season of flower shows. This small selection of books highlights our enduring enjoyment of gardening and features numerous examples of the beautiful illustrations which often accompany such books, including work by John Farleigh, Charles Frederick Tunnicliffe and John Nash.
"Down the Lane" is the title of my children's picture book which has been lovingly made into an app for the iPad and iPhone. The producer is the award winning Auryn who have converted the pictures and text into an interactive experience.
If you touch any word on the screen it will appear highlighted and a narrator will read the word out loud. Also, if you touch any part of one of the many illustrations a word will appear on screen and a voice will speak, "flower","sky", "moon"etc. You also have the option of reading and narrating your own voice which can be recorded and saved on the app. There are other exciting features, you can read about them in iTunes, if you should be tempted to purchase the app you will be delighted to learn that it is available for less than the price of a cup of tea!
