The story of the Nativity is read in homes, schools and churches all through Advent, year after year. The emotion and detail in Anne Yvonne Gilbert's exquisite illustrations will make this picture book of the first Christmas stand out in the memory with all the awe and splendour that the birth of Jesus evokes. The retelling follows the traditional sequence of episodes and echoes the language of the Gospels themselves. A picture book to be treasured.
Sophie Piper is the pseudonym of an in-house author.|Anne Yvonne Gilbert's work ranges from children's books and postage stamps to posters and record sleeves. Her love of fairy tales and history combined has resulted in the design and illustration of many books for publishers worldwide. Amongst her many other commissions she has designed three sets of postage stamps for Royal Mail, (her 1984 nativity winning 'The World's Most Beautiful Stamp' and the 'Golden Stamp Award'). Her originals are held in many private collections including those of Arnold Schwarzenegger and the late H.R.H. Princess Margaret.
