Lorna Syson Designs Children’s Pop-Up Guide to Garden Birds
Lorna Syson has brought her contemporary design flair to a stylish new pop-up book of garden birds. Commissioned by Walker Books within their RSPB range of publishing, the new Panorama Pop-Up Book of Garden Birds features Lorna’s delightful illustrations of some of Britain’s favourite garden birds including the robin, blue tit, chaffinch and wren. With it’s distinctive cut-paper panorama construction, the book is the perfect introduction to garden birds for children and a great gift for bird lovers.
The 1.2metre X 100mm unfolding guide features a selection of more than 12 popular garden birds in full colour. Published by Walker Books in association with the RSPB it will be available from August 3rd 2017.
Lorna’s love of British flora and fauna is evident throughout her fabric and homeware collections and now she has brought the same passion for the countryside to book illustration. Lorna Syson’s designs celebrate the beauty of the flowers and birds that surround us and her interest in British gardens has led her to explore a whole range of outdoor spaces, from the formal gardens of stately homes to her own Brockley roof terrace, all of which inspire her designs.
