My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’ve been a massive fan of Anna Lewis’ sketches for a while now, so I was delighted to recieve this book for christmas.
Each beautiful sketch somehow manages to completely sum the wonder of motherhood. The struggles, the successes, the love, the tears and the other bodily fluids. Lewis’ drawing style is so simple but within those straightforward line drawings hides so much emotion. I’m not ashamed to say I shed a tear at nearly every single one.
Perhaps it’s because the journey from the positive pregnancy test to real life baby is still so fresh in my mind, but I found every drawing in this book relatable and it made my heart swell to have found someone who can so accurately put onto paper the overwhelming mix of emotions I’ve felt since my first positive pregnancy test, and in such a beautiful way.
Now I’ve just got to decide which of these illustrations I want to buy in print form for my walls!
