‘Swallows and Amazons’ Illustration by Pietari Posti


This isn’t an organized summer camp setting, but I love how Pietari Pieti captures the thrill of children playing and exploring nature in this artwork for the classic novel Swallows and Amazons, a British book by Arthur Ransome about children who set sail to an island where they camp out, do battle with pirates and encounter a series of adventures.
