Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye

After posting some of the beautiful pages from MinaLima’s edition of Peter Pan the other day, it made me want to share some more of the really aesthetic books in my collection.

Another book I am really proud of is my copy of Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye.  The story is about a mistreated bellhop called Warren who finds himself caught up in the mysteries of the strange mansion he calls home.  I have a sturdy hardback edition, and every page holds a new surprise: there’s a mixture of puzzles, doodles and intricate Victorianesque designs.

In lieu of a proper review (though I would probably award it 5* if I had reviewed it), I’d much rather post photos of this work of art instead:

I could take photos of this book all day, but I’ve got to leave something for potential readers.  Even though it is a children’s book, there is so much for older readers, like the use of language and of course the beautiful illustrations.

Happy reading!
