the Morran Book Project





Working is good, so - drum roll - the Morran book project is finished! The book is ready! And it looks fantastic if I might say it myself :) All profit will go to WSPA - World Society for the Protection of Animals - Sweden (WSPA international). The price for the book is US $34.95 for the softcover ($4 is going to WSPA and the rest is the price to Blurb for the book, they are printing and shipping it)

I've made it possible to see all pages - so if you are in the book, please take a closer look to see if your name is right and so on. I keep my fingers crossed I haven't forgot anyone...

Once again I'd like to say thank you to the jury that helped me to sort things out!

Here's the link to the book! Enjoy.

Mlle Paradis said...

what a beautiful tribute to morran and what a beautiful project in the name of a lovely little animal.

i'm sorry i'm late in offering my condolences. it's a terrible thing to lose a loved companion - especially after all your best efforts to keep morran with you this past year.

may i borrow a picture to add to my xmas suggestions at http://mlleparadis.blogspot.com?

big hug to you.

rebecca said...

I feel honored to have my drawings in such great company. Thank you so much for putting this together Camilla, I know it was a rough road to travel down, but to see so many lovely images of your sweet Morran. I think I might make my own for my 2 that past this year. These are all so very wonderful!

Oh Camilla!! This is such a beautiful tribute to your dear friend. I feel so honored to be a part of this project. The book is just so beautiful! I have been back several times to flip through and look at all of the amazing artwork in it today. I just ordered myself a copy for my birthday. Thank you for all of your hard work. You are amazing and I know Morran would be proud.

Thanks Camilla and the jury for the work, and thanks to little Morran for the inspiration.
The books are so beautiful, it's an honor to be in there.
I'll order right now some of both for Christmas gifts (or for the "Three Kings" gifts here in Spain).
Hugs.

Patrice, everyone's picture is in the 180 pages book!

Georgette said...

All of the contributions are absolutely remarkable.

How incredibly beautiful!

What an powerful testament to the inspiration and love we all felt for Morran.

Tremendously honored to take part.

Thank you Camilla! xo

serena said...

thank you Camilla!!!

I just found your blog via Decor8 and am so touched by the wonderful tribute your friends have created to honor your beloved Morran.

As a dog owner and canine rescue person the book is amazing in so many ways. The love expressed within each image shines through so brightly.

I am so sorry for your loss. What a wonderful life you provided to Morran and what an incredible legacy he leaves behind.

Sheila said...

What a lovely tribute. Morran reminds me of a little stray that my parents rescued from Barbados of all places (we live in Canada). I think it's the ears...floppy and perky at the same time. :)

I'm so sorry to hear of Morran's passing. It's a pain I know all too well. No matter how long they live, it's never long enough, is it?

Ana said...

This project is so beautiful. I love the book, it turned out beautiful. Congrats Camilla :)

adu said...

I'm so happy and honored to be in both books!!! I'm so glad I read about the project on Julia Bereciartu's blog :)) thanks Camilla!!! I'm waiting for my copy:)

This is the most amazing project that i've seen recently! Congats! Who can give a full list of illustrators on the book?

joanna (asia) concejo said...

I love this book :-)

Kathleen Maunder said...

I just looked through the preview on Blurb and started to cry. Part of it must be that my parents' dog died last week, but I think also it is because there is just so much love in the pages. What an inspiring book in so many ways.
