Weight 0.5 kg

Two brilliant artists get together and plan a dramatic book in words and images about the twists and turns in the life cycle of a woman. From birth onwards, no topic is skirted around. Kate Forsyth is an award-winning and bestselling author for adults and younger people. Wendy Sharpe is a visual artist with accolades and global experiences aplenty. This collaboration takes them both to new places in their creative lives. The drama that Kate and Wendy create on the pages of this lush book—in a collage style—will speak particularly to women with an intimacy that carries poignant and loving memories and knowledge, too, of the best things in life. ­Kate Forsyth is the internationally bestselling author of more than thirty books. She completed a doctorate in fairytale retellings, and the novels that have come out of this fascination include the winner of the 2015 American Libraries Association Prize for Historical Fiction, Bitter Greens, The Wild Girl and The Beast’s Garden. Wendy Sharpe is one of Australia’s most acclaimed artists. She has been awarded The Sulman Prize, the Portia Geach Memorial Award (twice), the Archibald Prize, and a finalist in the Sulman Prize twelve times, and the Archibald Prize seven times. She has held over 60 solo exhibitions around Australia and internationally.
