Attachment and loss at Waterstones

Impressed by the quality of the materials, design and story I bought little B this children's book for Christmas at Waterstones. William Blake’s poem Eternity inspired the story about Fox who lives in the forest and looses his dear friend Star and it is Waterstones book of the year.

“He who binds to himself a joy 
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies 
Lives in eternity’s sun rise”
"I am all about the physical book" said Bickford-Smith. " We haven't released The Fox and the Star as an ebook because I dont think it would work -its all about the paper. I wanted to create something which harked back to the beautiful visual thinking of William Morris and William Blake, so that people would really appreciate the book as an object"
