Laure Fournier Illustrates for All!
Everyone is welcome at the ‘Church for All’ and the etherial quality of Laure’s glowing illustrations perfectly capture the serenity of a community coming together one Sunday morning. This simple, lyrical story celebrates an inclusive church that embraces all people regardless of age, class, race, gender identity, and sexual orientation. Laure is truly in her element bringing to life these beautifully diverse characters and creating wonderfully intimate tableaus that give us a glimpse of their daily lives before gathering to worship and says of the project:
'For this book I decided to distance myself from my computer and reconnect with paper and brushes and it was a real pleasure! I really enjoyed imagining this crowd of eccentric and original characters and to paint the joy of living in their faces!'
A Church for All is out from Albert Whitman and Company next month!
