It’s 15 years since I breastfed, so I just meant to have a gentle flick through Chippenham-based artist, activist and writer Kate Evans’ new book The Food Of Love. An hour later I emerged remembering fondly the months I’d fed my son and wishing this book had been around back then. It’s warm, generous, funny and reassuring, and illustrated with Kate’s cartoons (which might look familiar if you’ve read Funny Weather, her graphic book on climate change). An excellent book to prepare yourself for breast-feeding before birth, as well as to use when your baby arrives, it offers real-life, practical, down-to-earth techniques and solutions in a non-super-mum, we’re-all-human-here kind of way. Lovely.
