The Lost Words


After hearing and reading so much about the book The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris I made a point to be sure to put my name on the list for it within our library system. I was tickled to get my hands on a copy this past Friday so that I could take it home to savor at my leisure over the weekend.

Let me just say that this book does not disappoint! It's absolutely beautiful for so many different reasons. For the language, the words, the illustrations...even the size of the book and the weight of the pages makes it feel special.

This is a book with so much care and purpose. Intention. It feels so very needed in today's culture and climate.

I highly recommend that you try to get your hands on a copy to enjoy for yourself and perhaps to share with others.
