May the Stars Drip Down
Children’s Book

May the stars drip down light on you,
And you close your eyes to see the moon,
And sleep will pull you through.
May the starlight find you.

Thus begins the gorgeous lullaby May the Stars Drip Down by the band Cub Country, now adapted into a beautiful bedtime book with illustrations by the acclaimed cut-paper artist Nikki McClure.

Nikki's tender and intricate images, inspired by nature and the intense bond between parent and child, perfectly complement musician Jeremy Chatelain’s soothing lyrics. An audio download of the song is also included.

Size: 8.5" x 10.5"

NIkki McClure lives in Olympia, Washington under cedar trees along the eastern shore of the Southern Salish Sea.

Nikki uses an x-acto knife to cut her designs into paper.

Nikki's wall calendar was the first product ever carried by buyolympia.com back in 1999.

Printed on 100% Recycled Paper. Features a cloth-bound spine with a silver (not real silver, then the book would cost a lot more) printed text.

The book is broken into four seasons, each one features a preface written by Nikki that talks about her life, work and the feelings and actions she conveys.

She describes her process: "I make my pictures by cutting away at black paper with a knife. The paper becomes lacelike and everything connected. What remains is a paper-cut, just black and white. Color and text are added later. My words are letter-pressed or cut out by hand."
