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.

    Comments about Window:

    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.

    Jeannie Baker

    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 unique 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. It can take Jeannie up to three years to produce a book. Jeannie was born in England but has lived in Sydney for many years.

    Internationally renowned, her work has garnered critical and public acclaim in Australia and abroad and also many awards, a selection of which include, Australian Picture Book of the Year Honour Book, 2005, for "Belonging", Australian Children’s Book Council Picture Book of the Year Award, 1992, for "Window", Notable Book by the American Library Association, 1984, and short listed for the Kate Greenaway Medal, 1985, for "Home in the Sky" and a Boston Globe Horn Book Magazine Honour Book award,1988, and International Board of Young People Honour Book Award, 1990, for "Where the Forest Meets the Sea". 

    Her latest book, "Mirror" was the winner of the Children’s category at the 2011 Indie Book Awards and also short-listed for NSW Premier's Literary Award. 'Mirror' was joint winner in the 2011 CBCA Book of the Year Awards - Picture Book Category. 'Mirror' has also been short-listed for the Australian Book Industry Awards (ABIA's) for 2011. Mirror was also short-listed for the Western Australian Premier's Book Awards for 2010 in the Children's Books category.
