How did the book come about, and when did you first start working with Wide Eyed Editions?
We’ve worked with Wide Eyed Editions before, a few years ago, when we released our first two children’s books: Technicolour Treasure Hunt and Patterntastic Treasure Hunt. Later, they proposed that we make a new book together, based on our personal illustration piece called ‘Time Stood Still’, and that illustration is now the cover of Wild World, altered a tiny bit to fit with the contents of the book.
What is the book about, and what attracted you to the project?
The book depicts 13 different natural habitats, showing the plants and wild life that live there. It is a gentle reminder of how our precious natural environments are threatened and need protection. We wanted to make this book because it was a great possibility to showcase our work in this format, and we’ve long dreamed of creating a very intricately illustrated book.
