Kiwi artist Kate Hursthouse's first children's book A kaleidoscope of butterlies & other such collective nouns beautifully illustrates 25 of our planet's groups of animals.
Kate's drawings are stunning, my younger daughter's favourite was "a blessing of unicorns". This engaging book will appeal to all ages of children. Although it is more suited to younger children, my elder daughter found the book inspiring to drawn her own animals. Adults will also have fun learning which collective nouns are used for different groups of animals.
Kate is a dynamic young kiwi artist championing a renaissance in the art of calligraphy and making her mark in Auckland with large scale hand-painted murals in addition to collaborations with Karen Walker, Lululemon, Spark NZ, Laneway Festival, TedxAuckland and Auckland City Council. Kate also runs hand-lettering and calligraphy workshops out of her design studio Scribble Me in Ponsonby.
