Amelia Gregory of Amelia's Magazine kindly sent me this beautiful new book Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration and it is quite at home amongst my collection of beloved illustrated books-here it is with Amelia's Magazine Issue 9 and Amelia's Anthology of Illustration- in fact, it's my new favourite! Lovingly produced to the highest quality and 'featuring the very best in ethical fashion design' this compendium is a keepsake, a contemporary collection of upcoming illustrators and ethical fashion designers- it's the BEST combination! Not only am I proud to have it on my bookshelf but it's been the first thing I show friends and family. I was a contributing illustrator and it features illustrations produced for Amelia's Magazine as well as ones for ethical fashion designers Goodone and Alice Takes A Trip. Here are my pages beautifully put together by Amelia
