Reading Corner

These were just an excuse to mention important and/or beautifully written books, and to imagine interiors in which I’d like to live. I wanted to illustrate people who are interested in reading about different lived experiences than their own, as I think that’s how you develop empathy. So they’re all reading a book written by someone from a different ethnic group (or religion) to them.

The illustrations are all available to buy as prints on my shop.

Book in image 1: The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
