PERRY, Georgina (design) Alana Wulff (text) Love You, Dad Random House, 2014 unpaged $14.99 ISBN 9780857982780
This book is a collection of random memories, written by a daughter to her much loved father. They vary from observations, apologies, compromises to the sharing of secrets about the times they have spent together, and they all end with the same comment ‘love you Dad’. The message on each page is inscribed onto a range of different backgrounds, designed by Georgina Perry, reflecting what the message is saying or an aspect of the daughter’s world. As a package of memories, it prompts many warm thoughts for those who have been fortunate enough to have a very special Dad. It is something that many daughters might like to share with their dads.
