Finnish illustrator, Sanna Annukka is familiar to many from her collaborations with Marimekko and her artwork for Keane's album, Under the Iron Sea. For her first book project, she illustrates Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tale, The Fir Tree.
Animals, woodland, and the interaction of people and nature are prominent themes in Sanna's work which is heavily inspired by folklore, making her the perfect artist to illustrate Andersen's story. A beautiful gift to give and receive.
