A great book list. Thank you for commenting on my blog and I plan to have a good peek around yours. Expect a few more comments in the inbox.
Yes, roadside litter - I still see people throw things out from their cars. It's insane. Why do people think it's someone else's responsibility. Who raised them? Shame.
The reserve is on the Central Coast of NSW. It's called Kantara Reserve. There are also a number of national parks here, but for a council reserve in the middle of suburbia, isn't it magic? We walked for just over three hours and the landscape kept changing.

I too would love the Charley Harper book, lots of illustration & inspiration, a bit too pricey for me even though it would be worth it.
Have a great weekend!

Printing by Hand is on my wish list too. So is Wendy Mullen's "Home Stretch" (follow on from Sew You).

Have you seen the Charles Harper group on Flickr? It's great for browsing his illustrations while you wait to get your hands on a book of your own.

Ooo this Charley Harper book looks fabulous - his animals are devine. If you love his stuff you may like an artist from Philidelphia Eleanor Grosch - Thanks for commenting over at my blog - I love finding out who's reading and now I've just had a good squiz over here at yours! Seems like were both new to the blogging arena! x
