Rear Window by Cecilie Maurud Barstad
Rear Window is an illustrated anthology observing life in the converted old Arsenal Stadium during the first London Spring lockdown. A series of illustrated short stories by Cecilie Maurud Barstad that embraces the essence of lockdown life.
From the balcony of her home, Maurud Barstad spent weeks and months observing, studying, and drawing her neighbours in lockdown. In her colourful images and pithy narratives the reader enters her back courtyard in Highbury with all its smells, conversations, noise and silence, morning light and night-time shadows. The stories are warm, wise and full of lovable characters. A beautifully produced book that was originally crowd-funded by Highbury illustrator Barstad.
