Where the Dalek meets the Sea

This instalment of the Dalek Game is for Jeannie Baker’s beautiful (and Australian classic) picture book Where the Forest meets the Sea.

My favourite of her books is the less Dalek-suited Home, a wordless picture book which traces the development of an inner-city Australian neighbourhood over two decades using the view through a single window. I saw her original three-dimensional collage artwork for that book once at the Museum of Brisbane – remarkable and beautiful. The picture book makes me cry, but many do.

In other news: The original art of Wednesday’s A Tale of Two Bad Daleks is still available until Wednesday 25 January , if you would like to put in a bid to support the MS Society.
