by Bernardo Carvalho

Praia-mar

In the mail came the most lovely large picture book from Portugese publisher Planeta Tangerina. The book, in only pictures, no words, illustrates the feeling of enjoying the beach. There’s a gorgeous limited palette and the characters are very simply drawn, yet have so much character. They play, float, swim, do handstands and snorkel in the water, lounge in the sand and find pretty shells. This book made me crave a beach trip like crazy! I can’t wait to do all those things myself. I can smell the sunscreen. I’m excited to learn about this publisher because it looks like they put out a lot of other beautifully illustrated books by Bernardo Carvalho and others. Check them out and order a copy here.
