- About The Author
"An Alphabet of Luxe" is Helopino's first book; an illustrative ode to childhood escapism and creativity.
Recapturing the first few moments when a child catches sight of her mother's sumptuous wardrobe; readers follow the pursuit of Heidi and Pino, a young girl and her mischievous pup as they travel and play through the wardrobe accompanied by each letter of the alphabet.
A picture book with no age limit. Contained inside is something to indulge every reader, mingling a child-like rhyme with timeless fashion pieces. It will evoke a sense of wonder in its younger readers or reacquaint those a little older with the little girl that resides within. Perch it on your child's bookshelf or keep it on your own nightstand.
“An Alphabet of Luxe” reminds us to view the world through the lens of a child; of the wonders of play.
Natalie Rompotis is a mother of two young children, a lawyer, and an artist based in Melbourne, Australia.
Her love of illustrating began as a child, and despite working as a commercial lawyer and litigator for a number of years in both private practice and in-house, she has now returned to her original passion.
Her work is inspired by the magical world of fashion and classic cinema with a nostalgic European aesthetic. An idyllic childhood living in Greece, a sense of Hellenism, and ten years of French language and culture study permeate her creations.
Helopino books were crafted with the intent to share evocative stories, to reacquaint its readers with the delight of reading, and remind us all to carve time out for play.
"An Alphabet of Luxe" is a creative collaboration between author, Hayleigh Konstantakopoulos and illustrator, Natalie Rompotis.
