Black Gold (HarperCollins) by Laura Obuobi, illustrated by London Ladd, has received another glowing review- this time from BookList. The review calls the book “wondrously illustrated” and says “The illustrations can only be described as magical, blending elements of fantasy with nature and star scapes. Ladd creates unique layered effects through his combination of acrylic paint, cut paper, and tissue paper, and the deep purples and blues sparkle with flecks of gold-shining light.” Congratulations, London!
The book is on sale October 11. Pre-order here.
