British Museum Press Out and Decorate: Ancient Egypt
Illustrated by Kate McLelland
From sarcophaguses to scarab beetles and canopic jars to crocodiles, this book features 20 unique, intricately foiled designs that can be slotted together to create 3D ornaments or threaded together to make an amazing amulet garland. These press-out pieces are stunning in white and gold foil, but look even better as a colourful collection of ancient Egyptian decorations.
For as long as she can remember, Kate McLelland has loved drawing and painting. Outdoor holidays with her family inspired hours of doodling animals and nature. She is the illustrator for Press Out and Colour: Christmas and Easter, and has a number of books being published, including Blackbird, Blackbird, What Do You Do? (Hodder Children’s Books) and What’s Below? (Egmont). Kate lives in Edinburgh with her husband and two children.
