As a student at Cardiff School of Art and Design, illustrator Rachel Walsh was asked to create a project that would explain something modern/internet-based to somebody who lived and died before 1900.
Walsh’s innovative idea was to take a large book and create 40 miniature books from its pages in order to explain the kindle to Dickens. The covers are recreations from real books and include Dicken’s own novels, his favourite childhood books, and some of the artist’s own.
Okay so it’s my first time to do watercolor (sort of) nails. I used nail polish + acetone on a white base and left my index finger white so I could draw on the branches with black acrylic and add cherry blossoms. These were easier than I thought.
Nail polish used: Essie Bachelorette Bash Orly White Tips
Review for Ink is on the book blog HERE. If you check out the review you’ll see a picture of the first time I tried nail art. I redid my Ink nails just to see the improvement.
As promised, here is my feels-themed giveaway! The books/series above all have one thing in common - they made me feel something. That doesn’t necessarily mean I cried but they definitely inspired some kind of emotional response in my robot-like self. They’re also some of my favourite books. Hopefully there’s a decent enough selection for you to choose from.
5 people will be sent a book of their choice from the selection above if they’re randomly selected as winners.

Your inbox MUST be open. I won’t be contacting anyone via fan mail
Winners may also choose a sequel to the books pictured above if it’s part of a series
Winners may choose which edition of the book they want, so long as it is paperback and under $15 (AU). The only exception is The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, which is over $20 and hardback. I’ll only be buying this for one person (if they want it) so I have enough for the other books, sorry! I just love it so much and want to be able to share it with at least one person, even if it’s expensive
One of the books, Alexander Altmann A01567 is only available as a prize for Australians, as it is unavailable on Book Depository. If Aussies would like this book, I will order it for you from Bookworld
If you’re not sure which book you’d like, I’d be happy to tell you more about them and help you pick one that suits your tastes
