Book Description

A wordless account of the reclamation of an urban landscape told through fascinating, detailed collage artwork.

Illustrated with elaborate and gorgeous collage constructions, Window is a wordless picture book that speaks volumes. It begins with a mother and baby looking through a window at a view of wilderness and sky as far as the eye can see. With each page, the boy grows and the scene changes, from forest, to a single house, to a village and then to a city.

  • '...a very moving, sophisticated picture book...illustrated with wonderfully detailed collages.' Nursery Education
  • Window is the companion to Belonging.
About The Author

Since 1972, Jeannie Baker has been making her collages, many of which are designed to illustrate picture books, but stand individually as works of art. Her collages are created from many rich textures, including earth, knitted wool and feathers, which, combined with more usual artists materials, achieve a wonderful three dimensional illusion. Internationally renowned, her work has garnered critical and public acclaim in Australia and abroad. Jeannie was born in England but has lived in Sydney for many years.

    Fantastic images of how time just keeps passing! Very nostalgic for this new mum starting to build up a library for our kids. Would love to have purchased the hardcover.
