Workman Publishing Sara Midda Baby Book $22.95
Sara Midda is back and so are the tiny, whimsical figures that have always beguiled us. The acclaimed artist and author of In and Out of the Garden, Sara Midda's South of France, and Growing Up and Other Vices (together with 436,000 copies in print), Sara Midda now celebrates the joys of babyhood.
In the Baby Book, the artist reinvents the traditional baby book as a delightfully practical album filled with unexpected touches. Here is a baby growing, baby eating, baby playing, and baby posing -- every page has a theme of baby's life and a jewel-like full-color border. It includes lots of room for photos plus miniature pasted-in envelopes in the back to store photographs and other important papers, and it's slipcased for gift-giving and safekeeping.
