The distinctive cover design and imaginative story illustrations were created by the artist Amy Sayers.
'I had admired Amy's work and loved the intricacy and expression that her paper-cuts conjured, well before any attempt on my part to write a children's story. It was with a certain amount of excitement that I approached her with a proposal to illustrate my fairy tales, followed by elation when she agreed.'
The illustrations of Amber consist of many layers of individually and painstakingly cut paper to produce an effect that is both alluring and inspiring to the imagination.
Amy Sayers is a professional artist based in North Wales. Having studied children's book illustration to masters level, Amy's work in watercolour and paper cut are both vibrant and intricately exquisite. The Images she creates are truly spellbinding in their detail and her work on Amber equally enchanting.
