Together by Luke Adam Hawker
Last week I had the most gorgeous book mail, it was wrapped beautifully and inside was such a special book; Together by @lukeadamhawker which is out today.
I sat down to read it straight away and I just fell in love with it. Together is an illustrated story of a man and his dog, navigating their way through a monumental storm that brings huge and sudden change.
Described as being “a gentle and philosophical look at the events of 2020, and how we can deal with the challenges life throws us”; I thought it was just most beautiful read. I found myself sitting and staring at some of the pages and thinking back over the last year or so. Each page is a work of art, his illustrations are incredible they’re so detailed and beautiful.
I did find it to be a really moving book but also it just made me feel calm and hopeful. It felt like a much needed hug in a book. Over the last year I’ve given lots of friends copies of The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse and I know that I will be doing the same with this one.
Together by @lukeadamhawker is out today. Thank you so much to @octopus_books_ for sending it to me, it’s a wonderful book and I just love it so much.
What books have brought you comfort over the last year?
