The Nebulous Kingdom Art Giveaway

25 May, 2010 by in etsy, the nebulous kingdom 28 comments

Today’s Etsy shop giveaway is from France and the magical fantasy art of The Nebulous Kingdom…”Anne-Julie is a distant dreamer, a sleepwalker on the lookout, a traveler from the shadows who loves labyrinths and unanswered enigmas, fairy tales and girls with white socks (Alice and her direct descendant, Ofelia from ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’). At night, her heroines are lost in a nebulous kingdom of dragonflies and flakes..”

-Danielle Chou


“French artist Anne-Julie Aubry works in both the traditional and digital paint mediums to create deceptively innocent works of art that are visually arresting and thematically intriguing.”
-Carl V. Anderson

5 stars
A chunky board book retelling the beloved fairytale for very young children. Little Red Riding Hood is on her way through the forest to visit her grandmother, but meets a big, bad wolf instead. With robust tabs to help children locate their favourite scenes.
Very simple text accompanies each picture making this book perfect for reading aloud to young children, or for children who are just beginning to read to tackle alone.
This is a series I absolutely LOVE! Usborne First Fairytales are sturdy, easy to handle and have gold glitter accents on the pages. They are worth every penny you spend for them and will be the longest lasting on your shelves. Who wouldn’t love this classic fairytale with wolves and little red in vivid color? 5+ stars from our family!
