The Illustrated Emily Dickinson Nature Sketchbook relies on the joys of verse with 50 Emily Dickinson poems to inspire drawing and sketching. Gorgeous, folk art–inspired illustrations from accomplished illustrator Tara Lilly inspire further drawing and literary exploration throughout the pages. With an elegant cover, this beautiful interactive sketchbook is the perfect gift for the artist or poetry lover in your life.
