This book is not meant to be read from cover to cover.
Instead, it is a book for dreamers. Its purpose? To ease the soul.
From award-winning writer/illustrator Jackie Morris, on the heels of 2020's The Lost Spells, is a book that enters the realm of dreaming. With its combination of lush illustration and creative storytelling, this book is destined to become a classic.
The paintings between these covers were worked in the between times - between waking and dreaming, during the unwinding of the soul, when the pressures of work were too much.
Half-story, half-fairytale, Jackie Morris has created an enchanting tome, to keep on the bedside table, to give as a gift to young and old alike.
Threaded through the curious world of The Unwinding are words, there to set the reader's mind adrift from their own troubles and the into peaceful harbours where imagination can stretch, and where quiet reflection can bring peace.
The Unwinding is designed to be a companion, a talisman to be turned to again and again and a place of respite from an increasingly frenetic and complex world.
Dreams and wishes are the inspiration at times like this.
