Garden Party is a collection of charming sketches and quotes from artist Helen Dardik. Dardik's pen-and-ink drawings are replicated from her sketchbooks and interspersed with quotes from classic novels such as Alice in Wonderland and The Secret Garden.
Dardik's illustrations of girl-fairies, flora, and fauna create a magical, dreamy world.
Many of her characters are hybrid girl/plant creatures whose friends include a menagerie of cats, dogs, and other critters. * Her illustrations are predominantly black-and-white, with a limited palette of accent colors. * Aesthetic feels equal parts vintage Scandinavian modern folk art and Japanese Kawaii culture,* Girl-powered and nature themed This is a charming, girl-centric book that is perfect for all gift opportunities, whether it's for a graduation or Mother's Day or simply for yourself.
The book's design is also a delight-it looks and feels like an actual sketchbook. * A perfect gift for teens, young adult women, mom-to-daughter, daughter-to-mom, friend-to-friend* Dardik's unique illustration style is at once elegant and whimsical. * Great for those who loved In the Garden of My Dreams: The Art of Nathalie Lete by Nathalie Lete. and How to Be a Wildflower by Katie Daisy
