Posted in: Children's books, Illustration, Publishing

This month sees the publication of “Step Inside Long Ago Ancient Rome’, fully illustrated by Rachael Saunders and published by Usborne books. The next instalment in the Step Inside series (the previous was Egypt) “…Ancient Rome” is packed full of laser-cut pages, perfect for peering back in time and into the lives of the romans.

Rachael’s talent for character work shines through in the pages, featuring scenes of Roman soldiers holding a victory parade, citizens visiting a bathhouse, and gladiators preparing for battle. The flaps and windows help to bring the scene to life, giving you a chance to find tigers under trap doors, fruit vendors at their stalls and the everyday life inside a roman apartment.
