brian wildsmith

i recently purchased' the twelve days of christmas' by brian wildsmith. 
his first childrens book was published in 1962 and he has won various awards over the years. alot of his book contain themes of animals, nature, or are based on fables  but i had never seen this one before. it feels very contemporary in its use of colour and pictorial abstraction
