We all love picture books. It’s how we all got started into the bookish world. Now if you are an art lover also you really are in for a treat with these stunning books from Tate Publishing. I’m pretty sure many of you have heard of the Tate art galleries. I’m lucky to live close by to the Tate down in St Ives.
Before we get onto the books I want to share with you a little about Tate. I don’t know about you but I love to read background stories and extra info. I do have an appreciation for art and when the girls get older I will be sharing this with them.
