This hand-picked collection of classic nursery rhymes, all delicately and painstakingly illustrated by Salley Mavor, who is reknown for her incredibly detailed fabric and cloth scenes.
 
It took Mavor ten years to develop her own fabric relief technique to a level where she felt comfortable even considering illustrating a book. Now, Mavor embroiders and sews illustrations, each scene taking nearly a month to complete. In this book, Mavor renders a new and visionary nursery rhyme world with precision and intricacy for many a generation to treasure for years and years to come.

(Click on Images to Enlarge)


The character’s faces are painted on wooden beads.

I include beads, shells and other found objects in the fabric relief scenes.

I hand sew every stitch in every illustration.



Some characters in the book have hats made of acorn caps.

I use plant dyed wool felt and multicolored threads to make the pictures.

I like using driftwood to make house roofs and furniture.
