Cheese. Tomato. Peas. Watermelon. Olive. Waffle. Banana. Color and texture flourish in paintings that serve up delicious bites.

Bites is part of Set II in the Artists’ Board Book Series. Combining the conventions of artists’ books with those of children’s board books, the Artists’ Board Book series was inspired by the delight and creativity with which young children visually and physically explore books. These books offer physical experiences with art for lookers and readers of all ages.

Ever (Hilary) Baldwin lives in New York's Hudson Valley with their partner David, their son Louis, and a chihuahua named Stick. Their paintings are inspired by the natural landscape, plastic food, and vintage cookbook photography.
