It was lurve at first sight when I recently came across the illustration work of Jolby – I’m crushing on a wedding invitation that they designed over at Invitation Crush today, too – and I’m in full on squee mode over The King’s 6th Finger, the result of a collaborative effort between Jolby and Rachel Roellke. The book is about a king named Mortimer who is obsessed with the number 5. One day, he looks down at his hand and discovers that he’s grown a 6th finger! What ever will he do to rid himself of the extra digit?
This book looks like a lot of fun, and the illustrations are absolutely fantastic, as are pretty much all of the illustrations in the Jolby portfolio. You can purchase The King’s 6th Finger over at Jolby’s Etsy shop, where they also sell art prints, cards, and super cool laser cut wood pieces.
