Chris Haughton - A Bit Lost

I decided to kill a few hours in Liverpool the other day and visit Waterstone's children's book department. A few books caught my eye but I really like this "A Bit Lost" by Chris Haughton published by Walker. You can visit his site by clicking the title link.

This book really stood out among some fairly conservative offerings, although Walker Books do seem to be publishing some really nice things at the moment. It was first published in Korea however. It's a beautifully designed book, witty and amusing illustrations by this Irish illustrator who has worked for The Guardian and many others. He is probably best known for his work with People Tree the Fair Trade fashion company. There is link on his site to a talk by him at Offset 2009 too.
The People Tree company has its website here:
