New Erm books

Our dear friends at Erm Books recently delivered a bundle of their two newest titles, Compendium of Me by Beci Orpin and Silent Observer by Marc Martin, and we couldn't be more pleased! Not only are the these books beautiful, blurring the lines between an artist book and kids book (perfect for all ages!)... they're from two of our favorite local Melbourne illustrators.


Orpin's Compendium of Me, her debut book (!!) traces the objects, spaces and foodstuffs that define her colour-drenched creative and domestic life.


Silent Observer continues Martin’s vivid explorations of both urban life and the natural world, teasing out the story of an unlikely relationship between a man and his feathered friend.

The quietness and subtle narrative of Marc Martin's slightly melancholic tale balances perfectly with Beci Orpin's visual explosion of colour and jumbled objects. Both books are available instore now!
