We Are The Friction

Sing Statistics (Jez Burrows and Lizzy Stewart) sent me over their new book, We Are The Friction, and if it were a woman I would propose to it. It is a perfect 10. A flawless victory. Illustrators and writers were paired and asked to produce work inspired by the work of their partner: stories from illustrations, and illustrations from stories. The result is pure magic.
