For many years I'm been dreaming of doing an art book that would collect over 35 years of my illustrations into one volume.

GOLDEN DREAMS, The Art of Ruth Sanderson, is a proposed 224-page full color hardcover book that will do just that, with your help!

Kickstarter is a new website designed for people to help raise the funds needed for creative projects, such as self-publishing an art book, with people pledging for "rewards" -i.e the published book and other goodies.  A number of my friends have been successful at doing this, so I thought I'd give it a try!

Here's the link -

Thanks so very much for taking a look!

I will be posting a few mock-ups of spreads that will be in the book to give you an idea of the design. Here is one from the chapter on Nancy Drew:

Random House

Darcy jacket

DARCY, the 10th book in the HORSE DIARIES series was written by my daughter, Whitney. It is set in Ireland in 1917 and has historical references to the political troubles of the time, in addition to the daily life of a Connemara pony. The series offically ends with this book, but I just got wind there might be a "Special Edition" which I would be asked to illustrate. Stay tuned!

Originally published in 1997 by Little, Brown and Co, Crocodile Books, a division of INTERLINK PUBLISHING, is releasing a new edition of this Grimm's fairy tale, which I retold and illustrated. The book has all new scans and is a much better reproduction of the artwork than the original version.
