The die cut sections provide a teaser into the next room and glimpses of detail awaiting us, hence we couldn’t wait to turn each page.

The dramatic fold-out spread which produces the jam-packed loft, evoked so many memories for me.

Melvin has encapsulated everything I too held dear about those treasured visits to my own Grandma, even the smell!
