The Midnight Garden - Gabrielle Crowley - Fine Press
"None of the women tried to stop her as she moved toward the branch from the pomegranate tree. It bore a single piece of fruit, more lush and red than any she had ever seen in this world and she knew it was fresh from the midnight garden in the underworld."
Penelope has what you might call a green thumb... and yet the midnight garden presents challenges that will cause her to re-evaluate life... and death. This is a familiar story: domineering mother, ancient curse, forbidden love; all made brand new by debut author Gabrielle Crowley.
The Midnight Garden has been bound by Brianna at Penrose Press. The cover has several layers of reduction linocut printing, and the text pages have been printed digitally. The illustrations are careful character studies overflowing with plants by Creative Director Brianna Tosswill. This pocket-sized book is 4.25" wide and 5.5" tall.
