If you’re a fan of classic tales like Romeo and Juliet and Pride and Prejudice, then you’ll swoon at these illustrations by Yelena Bryksenkova and Becca Stadtlander. The two (separately) painted Classics Unfolded for Frances Lincoln publishers.
Stories are told in a fold-out concertina gift format that features 16 illustrated frames. The publishers describe it saying, “every title in this series is like a visual ‘spark notes’: a learning tool that simplifies plots into bite-sized pieces, and doubles as a beautiful piece of freestanding art to shelve or frame.”
I love both Yelena and Becca’s styles and think they’re perfect for this project. Plus, they are real-life friends — what a nice coincidence (or is it?)!
You can now preorder these titles for release in March.
