'One Photo' by Ross Watkins and Liz Anelli - Picture Book Launch Saturday, 10th September


Congratulations to Ross Watkins and Liz Anelli who launched their new picture book, 'One Photo' (published by Penguin Random House) on Saturday, 10th September at Watt Space Student Gallery in Newcastle.

I found it fascinating these two very creative people hadn't met before last Saturday but everyone at the launch agreed the book feels like they worked closely every step of its production.

'One Photo' is a poignant story about love, loss and legacy; one son, one family, one photo. It looks and feels beautiful from cover to cover.

Have the tissues ready when you find a quiet place to absorb this book.

Here are a few photos from the launch.
