The Child was finishing an art assignment on the weekend and this print fell out of the heavy artbook she'd taken out of our bookshelf. It's a print of our cat Maisie, who died a few years ago. It was commissioned to accompany a story The Husband wrote for Notebook after her death.
At the time The Husband contacted the US illustrator Karen Greenberg to ask if we could buy a print. She generously printed it out and sent it to us. It was popped into the back of the art book for safe keeping and eventually forgotten about. Until the weekend.
As we're getting together some new art while redecorating The Child's room, this still-to-be-framed print of Maisie will finally find a home.
Here's the story The Husband wrote (he's a lovely writer). It's an early PDF of the magazine layout (we don't have a final) which is why there's empty pic boxes and strikethrough text in captions. His words, though, didn't change.
